The Abolish the Welsh Assembly Party has failed to win a single seat in the Senedd, following a poor performance.


While the party had two MSs in the previous Senedd, neither had been elected as an Abolish candidate.


Mark Reckless and Gareth Bennett were first elected as UKIP candidates in the 2016 election.


Opinion polls suggested that the party could win a number of seats on the regional list.

Abolish ran on a single-issue, anti-devolution platform, but also had a handful of other policies including, allowing academies and free schools to set up in Cymru, and ending the one million Welsh speakers target.
