UK General Election 2024

Vote

The UK General Election will be held on Thursday 4 July 2024. This will include election of our representative for the Cardiff West Constituency in the UK Parliament.

In order to help voters decide who to vote for, the RMA have organised a hybrid hustings event for Monday 24 June 2024 starting at 19.30. You can either attend on-site at the Old Church Rooms or online via Zoom.

Our long-standing Member of Parliament, Kevin Brennan MP is stepping down in this election. He will be replaced by a new representatives for the re-shaped Cardiff West Constituency following the reduction in the number of Welsh Constituencies recommended by the Boundary Commission.

Send your questions through in advance to Hustings@radyr.org.uk and our moderator will then pose these questions to your candidates. Tune in to watch the candidates answers live – or watch again afterwards.
