Cardiff coalition deal

  • Comment
The Liberal Democrats and Plaid Cymru have struck a deal to run Cardiff Council as independents run a third of all Welsh councils.

Following the local elections, coalition deals have been struck across Wales with only four councils left with majorities for one party.

The Lib Dems hold sway among the parties having bolstered their positions in 13 administrations. Labour stay in nine councils, Plaid Cymru in eight and the Conservatives are in seven.

At Torfaen CBC control remains unknown as talks between the political groups have failed to determine a leader or coalition.

In Cardiff Rodney Berman (Lib Dem) will lead the council, with Neil McEvoy (PC) and Judith Woodman (Lib Dem) becoming deputy leaders.

Cardiff ban on PFI

As part of the ‘Capital visions’ programme to run services to 2012, policy pledges include a ban on private finance initiatives and an overhaul of the controversial school reorganisation programme.
Conwy’s cabinet excludes the Tories and is made up of Plaid Cymru, Labour, Liberal Democrat and independent councillors.

The Tories are excluded despite being the largest group, with 22 councillors. The council leader is Cllr Dilwyn Roberts (PC), who represents Llangernyw, and is part of the 12-strong group.
