Also, however, it is one of nine constituencies in the North Wales electoral region, which elects four additional members, in addition to nine constituency members, to produce a degree of proportional representation for the region as a whole.

It has been represented since 1999 by Ieuan Wyn Jones, the Deputy First Minister and leader of Plaid Cymru.

As created in 1999, the North Wales region includes the constituencies of Alyn and Deeside, Caernarfonmarker, Clwyd West, Clwyd South, Conwymarker, Delynmarker, Vale of Clwyd, Wrexham and Ynys Môn. For the 2007 Assembly election the region will include Aberconwy, Alyn and Deeside, Arfonmarker, Clwyd South, Clwyd West, Delynmarker, Vale of Clwyd, Wrexham and Ynys Môn.


In elections for the National Assembly for Wales, each voter has two votes. The first vote may be used to vote for a candidate to become the Assembly Member for the voter's constituency, elected by the first past the post system. The second vote may be used to vote for a regional closed party list of candidates. Additional member seats are allocated from the lists by the d'Hondt method, with constituency results being taken into account in the allocation.
