2008 Carmarthenshire County Council election

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The fourth election to the Carmarthenshire County Council was held on 1 May 2008.[1] It was preceded by the 2004 election and followed by the 2012 election. While the Independent councillors again had the largest number of seats, Plaid Cymru gained considerable ground, notably in the Llanelli and Ammanford areas. The Independents formed a coalition with Labour.

Full results of the election were published in the local press.[2]
