A spokesperson for Dafydd Elis-Thomas local party has issued this statement about his decision to quit Plaid Cymru in the Assembly.

We thank Dafydd Elis-Thomas for his work for the party and the constituency since 1974.

We are saddened and disappointed by his departure.

The local constituency committee now appeals to his conscience and requests that he stands down in order to allow for a byelection.

We will be making no further statements at present.
