MP for Brecon and Radnorshire, Fay Jones said she was "delighted" after being reselected to stand in the area at the next election.

Ms Jones was reselected by the local Conservative party to stand as a candidate in southern Powys after holding the seat since 2019.

She will now contest the next election - although it could be in a slightly reshaped and renamed seat, pending the ratification of boundary changes.

In a statement on social media, Ms Jones said she was delighted to be running again.  


"Representing Brecon and Radnorshire for the last three years has been the best job I could have ever asked for," said Ms Jones.

"So I’m over the moon to have been selected again for the new constituency of Brecon, Radnor and Cwmtawe.

"This job hasn’t always been easy but each small win for my constituents has been intensely rewarding."

Ms Jones took the seat in the 2019 election after beating the Liberal Democrat incumbent Jane Dodds.

She has served as the Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to various government departments before being recently appointed as an Assistant Government Whip by Rishi Sunak.
