Welsh Politicians Gear Up For Parliamentary Elections

At the moment, the Welsh Labour party leads a coalition government with Plaid Cymru, with the Liberal Democrats, and the Welsh Conservative Party in opposition with a number of smaller fringe parties, all of whom are standing for re election.

Journalists gather in a hotel in the centre of town early in the morning to question Nerys Evans, standing for Welsh nationalist party Plaid Cymru, who's launching an advert in the hope of encouraging undecided voters.

Not far away, a publicity stunt by Welsh Liberal Democrat leader Kirsty Williams is trying to expose the waste that they say has accumulated from the current coalition government.

In North Cardiff, Andrew Davies is pushing the last of his campaign leaflets through the doors of potential voters.

Issues affecting the people of Wales centre mostly on public spending cuts that have been announced by the UK government in London, who still have control over some areas of Welsh politics. In particular, there are concerns over the National Health Service, where the pressure is on to save money.

On the streets of Cardiff, voters know what they need politicians to prioritise to gain their support.

In a recent referendum, the Welsh Parliament was given the power to make primary legislation on a number of issues, giving it a renewed authority which it is hoped will inspire more voters.

This election is a chance for the people of Wales to step away from the politics of Westminster and take a hold of the issues that matter to them at a local level, which is of great significance to this small but ultimately very proud country.
