Constituency Profile

Dwyfor Meirionnydd is a largely rural constituency which includes the Llyn peninsula and part of the Snowdonia National Park.

The seaside towns of Pwllheli, Abersoch and Criccieth attract tourists during summer months as does the Ffestiniog railway between Porthmadog and the slate-mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. The constituency has the second highest proportion of Welsh speakers - 65% according to the 2011 census. Average weekly pay is lower here than the Welsh average. The constituency, and its previous incarnation as Meirionnydd Nant Conwy, has been held by Plaid Cymru since the establishment of the Assembly in 1999. At the 2011 elections, Dafydd Elis-Thomas - the former Plaid Cymru leader - won the seat with 57% of the vote.
