Addressing the Senedd on Thursday (13 May), the leader of Plaid Cymru Adam Price has said that there is a "supermajority for self-government" in the current Senedd.


The comments refer to the more than forty Senedd members out of sixty who belong to either Plaid Cymru, Welsh Labour, or the Liberal Democrats— all of which support a form of self-government for the country.


While Welsh Labour and the Liberal Democrats support a form of federalism for the United Kingdom, Plaid Cymru advocates for independence.


Following his election victory, the First Minister called on Boris Johnson to ensure "home rule" for Cymru in a bid to halt the break-up of the United Kingdom.


He told the Financial Times, “We need home rule for Wales, more powers, a position where devolution cannot be pulled back by the whim of a prime minister,”


Price made the comments in a speech calling on the new Welsh Labour government to adopt a "politics of radical ambition" to tackle the country's biggest problems including, child poverty, homelessness, food and fuel poverty, poverty pay, the housing crisis, and the social care and mental health crises.
