. How do they make their political pairing work? The couple knew they were both standing when they met so there were no rude awakenings. They say that respecting each other’s opinion, was the key to their relationship’s success.“We have more in common than we don’t,” Leena told the BBC. “We do get a bit of banter where friends will send me what he’s said on social media saying ‘what is he on about?’ I just say, I love him.”So magnanimous are they that they have even used campaigning as a way to spend time together. But when it comes to politics, party allegiance always wins Leena says of Aaron: “I think he would be a great Senedd [Welsh Parliament] member. However, the nature of his party means that I would not feel comfortable in Wales if they increased their Senedd group.” Aaron is more succinct. “Of course, I want her to do well and I’m sure any partner would say that, but I will be supporting Plaid Cymru in her constituency.”
