Following Mark Drakeford’s election as Welsh Labour Leader, the Welsh Liberal Democrats have urged Mark Drakeford to unambiguously support a People’s Vote and commit the Welsh Government to campaigning to stop Brexit.
Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds commented:
I’d like to congratulate Mark on his victory as Welsh Labour Leader. I look forward to working with Mark in the future.
There are many important and pressing issues for Mark to immediately consider, but none are as important or as pressing as Brexit. I was disappointed that unlike his election rivals, Mark refused to back a People’s Vote during the election campaign.
We are proud to have led the fight for a People’s Vote from the beginning, but it is now truly a cross-party campaign. We urge Mark to seize this momentous opportunity to stop Brexit and join the campaign for a People’s Vote with the opportunity to choose an Exit from Brexit.
