Could you be our next Cllr,AM, MP or MEP?

With National Assembly elections next year, local Council elections in 2008 , European Elections in 2009 and a General Election that can happen whenever Mr Blair feels like it, the Welsh Lib Dems are launching a drive to find more candidates.

Could you be our next AM or local Councillor for your area?

That's the question we'd like you to think about - and if you are interested, then get in touch.

You don't need to be an expert in policy, and you don't need to be a campaign guru - in fact there's very little you really need other than the desire to represent your area and the determination to win!

Of course you do neeed to know some policy and hoW to campaing, but we can help you learn these things through training and development support.

There are also organisations within the party that provide help and support to candidates.

So where do you find out more?

Your first port of call should be the Welsh lib Dem office, who should be able to answer any initial queries and put you in touch with someone who can help you. They're on 029 2031 3400 or email

You may also find the following websites useful.,

Rule changes allows younger candidates from 2007 onwards....

Changes to rules governing who can stand for election mean that from 2007 onwards you only have to be 18 rather than 21 as previously to be a candidate at any election.

So that means even more people could stand as a Welsh Lib Dem candidate. As ever, contact the office if you'd like to find out more.
