I congratulate Carwyn Jones on his election as Welsh Labour Leader in Wales and soon to be our new First Minister.
I also wish to pay tribute to Rhodri Morgan for his decade of service and for his commitment to his party, to the Assembly and to Wales.
After two months of political uncertainty and drift the Assembly Government can get back to business and address the many problems facing Wales today.
Next week will be Rhodri’s last First Minister’s Question Time. I look forward to crossing swords with Carwyn in the New Year.
