2013 Ynys Môn by-election
The Ynys Môn by-election 2013 is a by-election that was held for the Welsh Assembly constituency of Ynys Môn on Thursday 1 August 2013, following the resignation on 20 June 2013 of its sitting Assembly Member, Ieuan Wyn Jones.
The Ynys Môn seat in the Welsh Assembly.
Triggered by vacation of seat by incumbent
Prior to the by-election, the governing Labour Party held exactly half the Assembly seats, meaning a gain for that party (who have held the equivalent seat in the House of Commons since 2001) would have given the Welsh government a two-seat majority.
