Selected to contest North Wales, Roamer was elected for the seat at the December 2020 Senedd election but soon resigned and defected to SATUP. Where he was chosen to be the Deputy Leader of SATUP, taking the position on 6 December 2020 and leading the party alongside KalvinLokan, the leader. Additionally, in late December, Roamer formed the Welsh Branch of SATUP called Plaid Syndicalydd Cymru, and he would lead it until its merger with the Welsh Progressives as part of the SATUP-PPUK merger agreement into the Welsh Workers Party which he retained leadership in though in a join capacity alongside Plebit2020. He served alongside Plebit until 12 April 2021 and became the WWP's MS for North Wales (Alyn and Deeside) and was appointed to the Welsh Cabinet as Minister for Communities and Local Government.
