Plaid AM Rhodri Glyn Thomas to step down in 2016

The Plaid Cymru AM and former heritage minister Rhodri Glyn Thomas will stand down at the next assembly election in 2016.

He has been the member for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr since the inception of the National Assembly in 1999.

Mr Thomas refused to be drawn on whether he had a preferred successor - but told Bethan Rhys Roberts of BBC Radio Wales that it must be somebody dedicated to the constituency.
