Welsh elections 2021: Labour set to win elections

By Laura Sharman | 08 May 2021

Welsh Labour are set to retain control of the Welsh Government, taking half of the seats on the second day of counting.

Labour have won 30 of the seats declared so far, with the Conservatives on 12, Plaid Cymru on nine and the Liberal Democrats on one.

Labour has described its performance as 'an extraordinary set of results' after early polls suggested it was facing its worst ever result.

First minister Mark Drakeford was re-elected to the Cardiff West constituency, winning nearly half of the votes.
