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.
