Welsh Labour is increasingly expected to form the next Welsh Government alone without the participation of other parties.


Following the election, Labour won 30 seats; one seat short of an overall majority.


Labour MS Jeremy Miles said that the party would only work on a "case-by-case basis" with other parties given its strong standing.


Mark Drakeford is also expected to resume his role as First Minister, with no challenges from other party leaders.


However, in the future, the party might need to coöperate with other parties to pass progressive legislation that requires a supermajority of forty Senedd members, including expanding the size of the parliament beyond the current sixty seats.
