Plaid Cymru’s Chris Franks, South Wales Central AM
Who is this man, I wondered – a politician or a Welsh radio station?
AM is actually an acronym for Assembly Member; that is, a member of the National Assembly for Wales.
As such it is akin to MP (Member of Parliament), MEP (Member of the European Parliament) and MSP (Member of the Scottish Parliament).
But I think that AM is less widely understood than the other acronyms, at least outside Wales...
