Welsh Assembly Tories disappointed Plaid backs Labour
The Welsh Conservatives have said it is "disappointing" for Plaid Cymru to back Carwyn Jones as first minister, after a deal was struck to break the deadlock over the appointment.
Mr Jones is set to be re-appointed when the Welsh Assembly reconvenes on Wednesday, a week after he was tied 29-29 with Plaid leader Leanne Wood in a Senedd vote.
The Tories and UKIP joined Plaid Cymru in backing Ms Wood, with Lib Dem Kirsty Williams the only non-Labour AM to support Mr Jones.
Conservative AM Paul Davies said his party had been ready to work with others to offer an alternative to a series of "failing" Labour administrations in Wales.
