Cai was a Member of the first Welsh Youth Parliament from 2018 to 2021.

The following was his candidate statement for election to the first Welsh Youth Parliament:

My Key Issues are:

  • Useful education opportunities for life
  • fast broadband for all
  • A plastic-free, low-carbon Wales

My name is Cai Phillips and I would like to stand for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire. I'm a 15 year old farmer’s son in year 11 at Ysgol Bro Myrddin in Carmarthen. I am a member of the eco committee and my favourite subject is drama. I like cooking and Doctor Who (but not at the same time!).

I am also very interested in politics, and my opinion is that we as young people don’t currently have our say. I feel strongly that the time has come for change. If you vote for me, I will voice your opinions with great enthusiasm. 'A young person for the young!'

I will also listen to you because we are the future, and we have the right to say in this new and exciting Youth Parliament. By voting for me, you will get a strong and confident voice in this venture.

From Castlemartin to Carmarthen, my constituency has the most magnificent locations in the world from Carmarthenshire to Pembrokeshire. Rural and urban. I consider all of these to be important to me and I will try my best to represent constituents’ areas. Vote for change. Vote for Cai.
