Plaid Cymru has won the Grangetown by-election, taking the Council seat from Labour.
This is the first time Cardiff Plaid has won a seat in the Cardiff South and Penarth constituency.
South Wales Central Assembly Member, Neil McEvoy, said,
"Huge congratulations to Tariq. What a candidate he was.
"This win shows how far we've come as a party. Plaid Cymru can win anywhere. From the most rural area to the most multicultural place in Wales. People want change and they want to be proud of their country. That's where Cardiff Plaid comes in.
"I now look forward to working with Councillor Awan as we work tirelessly to improve Grangetown."
