Labour denies it will form coalition with other parties

Labour say they won't be forming a coalition government but may do deals with other parties to get policies through.

That's exactly what's in its manifesto anticipating the party would not get an overall majority.

Watch: Our reporter Alexandra Lodge discusses some of the deals that may need to be make with political analyst Valerie Livingston.

Reports that we are actively pursuing a coalition are incorrect. Carwyn Jones has said he will talk to Plaid Cymru and the Liberal Democrats, but that does not constitute coalition talks.

Parties in Wales routinely talk to one another, and there will need to be some level of support to pass budgets and legislation.

Parties may also want discuss the election of a new Presiding Officer and Deputy Presiding Officer, which will take place next week, and must be done before a new Government is formed.
