The so-called Remain Alliance has announced tonight a cross-UK partnership designed to maximise the amount of pro-remain MPs elected in this years general election.

The alliance includes the Liberal Democrats, the Green Party and Plaid Cymru; with additional support coming from former Conservative MPs like Anna Soubry and Dominic Grieve. They announced that at least one party will stand down in sixty seats across the UK, with 11 of those constituencies being in Wales.

Plaid Cymru will be given a free run in anywhere between four and eight seats; likely to be included in the pact are three of the four seats Plaid already holds (Arfon, Carmarthen East and Dinefwr and Dwyfor Meirionnydd) in addition to their number one target seat in Ynys Mon. The Lib Dems will probably not be standing down in Ceredigion as they held the seat as recently as 2017.

The so-called Remain Alliance will follow on from their successful campaign in Brecon and Radnorshire last summer. Plaid and the Greens stood down in father of the Lib Dem candidate, Jane Dodds, who was ultimately successful in wrestling the seat away from the Conservatives.
