Sean Rees was the press officer for the Llanelli Branch of Plaid Cymru. In the run up to the General Election of 2017 he was replaced as the prospective MP candidate for Llanelli by Mari Arthur.
Numerous accusations flew around on social media but as yet neither Plaid Cymru’s central office nor the local Plaid Cymru branch appear to have got to the bottom of what actually happened.
Subsequently a large number of local branch members were suspended.
They were joined by Cardiff AM Neil McEvoy who was suspended from the central party.
Mr McEvoy now appears to have formed an alliance with the suspended members of the Llanelli branch and he is also travelling the country recruiting people to join what is as yet an unformed and un named separate wing of the Plaid Cymru party, which has the sovereignty of Wales at its core.
We caught up with Sean Rees at the Diplomat Hotel just after he had arrived to take part in the meeting with John McEvoy and Gwyn Hopkins.
