Plaid Cymru respond to Vaughan Gething becoming First Minister of Wales

Responding to Vaughan Gething becoming First Minister of Wales, Plaid Cymru Leader Rhun ap Iorwerth said,

“I congratulate Vaughan Gething on become the First Minister of Wales and wish him well.

“He inherits significant challenges as a result of Labour’s record in government in Wales, coupled with Tory austerity.

“A faltering economy, longer NHS waiting lists and falling educational standards is a legacy of collective government in which the incoming First Minister has played a central role for over a decade.

“We know the Labour leadership campaign was divisive, but we also saw a paucity of new ideas. The people of Wales will rightly be thinking that what lies ahead is likely to be more of the same.

“Ongoing questions around donations to Vaughan Gething’s campaign is now a serious cloud over the office of First Minister. Holders of high office must be able to secure the confidence of the electorate and in the absence of that money being repaid, public perceptions will persist.

“At a time when the Conservative UK Government has run out of road and with Labour failing in its duty to fight for Wales, it’s more important than ever to have a strong Plaid Cymru voice putting Wales’ interests first and making the most of its influence to bring about positive change in Wales.

“We will leave no stone unturned in holding the new First Minister and his Labour Welsh Government to account.
