A councillor in Wrexham has left the Plaid Cymru group on Wrexham Council.

Cllr Emma Holland is now a “Non-Aligned” councillor, after leaving the Plaid Cymru group on Wrexham Council.

All councillors were recently made aware of the move, with the public updated via a refresh of the council’s website.

Cllr Holland represents Gwersyllt North and was elected two years ago after securing a large victory in the ward.

Cllr Holland told Wrexham.com that she had “a number of ongoing issues with Plaid Cymru” that senior group members were ‘aware’ of.

She added: “I gave notice a few weeks ago, but left it until after Becca Martin’s election campaign had ended, in order to avoid causing her any unnecessary drama.

“I wish all my colleagues in Plaid all the best for the future and hope that we can work alongside each other, if not together, for the greater good of the people of Wrexham.”

We asked the Plaid Cymru Group Leader about the exit, however did not receive a comment.

Wrexham has 56 councillors, with Plaid Cymru down to eight and the ‘non aligned’ now numbering three – with Cllr Holland joining Cllr Mike Davies and Cllr Ronnie Prince as not being aligned with a political grouping.
