Negotiations to form a Government for Wales have started. As Rhodri said yesterday:
We have been exploring the different options and I have been seeking and received a mandate to have talks about talks, negotiations about negotiations.
It is very early days and clearly we will have to keep the group and the wider party in Wales informed.
As far as the Lib-Dems and Plaid Cymru are concerned, I will be seeking to have talks with Mike German and with Ieuan Wyn Jones so that we can see whether we can produce a stable government and a government which can deliver for the people of Wales over the next four years.
I am not going to make any further comment on this until after an agreement is concluded. I know that the Welsh media would love to have a running commentary on negotiations, but tough.
