Year of the Independent

Following on from an earlier post on the recent local election, it seems that it really is the year of the independent politician, as an Independent is set to land top role in Welsh local government.

The Welsh Local Government Association is expected to be led by a non-Labour politician for the first time in its history.

John Davies, the Independent leader of Pembrokeshire County Council, has been nominated to take up the role for the next four years (A farmer and fluent Welsh speaker from Cwmbetws, near Eglwyswrw, he was previously WLGA’s Education Spokesman).

The final ratification will take place on June 27.
