He was the National Assembly for Wales Member for South Wales West from 1999 until 2011, when Plaid failed to win the second seat on the regional list. He served as Shadow Finance Minister for Plaid Cymru in the National Assembly. In 2012, he unsuccessfully sought to regain his former seat in the Cockett ward on Swansea Council. He was again unsuccessful at a by-election in 2015.

He is the National Assembly for Wales Member for South Wales West from May 2016 [2]
