Clwyd South (De Clwyd in Welsh) is a constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (Westminster). The constituency was created in 1997, and it elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post method of election.
The Clwyd South Welsh Assembly constituency was created with the same boundaries in 1999.
The constituency straddles the authorities of Denbighshire and Wrexham. Main population centres includes Rhosllanerchrugog, Cefn-mawr, and Coedpoeth on the outskirts of Wrexham, and Llangollen. Until the 2010 election, the constituency used to include a small part of the preserved county of Powys. This anomaly was resolved by the Boundary Commission for Wales with the boundaries first used in 2010.
