Elen Johnston


Standing for:

Blaenau Gwent

My key issues are:

  • Disability access and support

  • Access and equality in education

  • Student debt

Candidate profile:

Many young people I have spoken to feel unrepresented and disenfranchised in the face of current political affairs.

As a constituent of Blaenau Gwent, I personally feel that until now I have had nowhere to take concerns raised to me.

Speaking to many people of my age I have discovered a collective concern on student dept and prospects of employment. With an higher percentage of older generation voters in my area it is easy to see that the views of young people in my area, are not representative of our constituencies referendum results.

This is most likely due to the inability of 16 year olds to vote. Discussing current issues with my peers, is not something new to me, however, having somewhere to take these concerns and opinions as a young person is not something I have had the opportunity to do in the past.

I am willing to ask the questions young people want answered while working with all generations to improve upon issues which effect all of our futures.
