Wales has a new prime minister: Labor’s Vaughan Gething is Europe’s first black prime minister

For the first time in its history, the Wales will have a black prime minister, the first also in the UK and across Europe. AND Vaughan Gething, elected on Saturday 16 March in the internal vote for the leadership of the Welsh Labor Party. Gething will take the oath Wednesday 20 March to take the place of Mark Drakeford, 69 years old, head of the outgoing government who announced his resignation last December after five years in office. “Today we turn a page in the history book of our nation, a history we write together,” he declared at the Labor assembly in Cardiff, the capital of Wales. Gething, born 50 years ago in Zambia to a Welsh father and a Zambian mother, although he is the first aphrodiscending it will be there third prime minister non-white on the four nations that make up the United Kingdom, after the English and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, of Indian origins, and the Scottish one Hamza Youssaf, of Pakistani family.

Gething won the Labor contest with 51,7% of votes by beating his rival Jeremy Miles who took the 48,3%. A challenge, remember Bbc, which was not without controversy: in particular the new leader of the Welsh nation was reproached by the opposition of the nationalist party Plaid Cymru for having accepted a donation from £200,000 from the Dauson Environmental Group, a company owned by the businessman David John Neal, convicted in 2013 for dumping waste in a protected area and in 2017 for failing to remove it. Both sentences were suspended, but the businessman had and continues to have problems with the law. And a few days ago it emerged that between 2016 and 2018 Gething fece lobbying activities to an environmental compliance officer on behalf of Neal.

In an interview the man defended his conduct, stating that he had always “scrupulously followed the rules” and that letters sent to the Welsh Environment Agency on behalf of the Atlantic Recycling by Neal “were part of my job in my constituency” as the company employs a considerable number of people. The newly elected Labor leader congratulated him Keir Starmer, for which Gething “will lead a hopeful and ambitious Welsh Labor government, facing a tired and failed Conservative government in Westminster”.
