Counting is underway in Anglesey and Gwynedd following the Senedd Cymru Election 2021.

We are expecting results for Arfon and Ynys Môn later today.

We should also learn which party is in pole position to form the next government.

We will bring you the results together with news from our Local Democracy Reporter Gareth Wyn Williams who has set up camp at Plas Arthur, Llangefni.


Polls opened at 7am on Thursday and closed at 10pm in the first election since the legislature was renamed from the National Assembly of Wales, and the first to allow 16 and 17-year-olds to vote.

The results will be seen as a reflection of how the Welsh public have rated First Minister Mark Drakeford and his government’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.




With Mr Drakeford calling for a radical redrawing of the UK and Adam Price’s Plaid Cymru wanting independence, the make-up of the next Welsh Government could also determine the future of Wales’s place in the union.
