Fresh challenge to Carwyn Jones from UKIP or Conservatives ruled out

The Assembly authorities have ruled out the possibility of the Conservative or UKIP leaders challenging Carwyn Jones in a vote for First Minister tomorrow.

AMs will meet to see if a fresh vote between Carwyn Jones and Leanne Wood produces a different outcome.

The Plaid Cymru leader is expected to withdraw from the contest, which was tied 29-29 last week.

The first business at the next plenary will be a further roll call vote unless one of the candidates indicates that they want to withdraw their nomination, in which case the remaining candidate will be the Assembly’s nomination.

The Presiding Officer will immediately recommend to Her Majesty that the Member nominated by the Assembly be appointed as First Minister.

UKIP have said that they will "oppose the coronation of Carwyn Jones" and force a vote by putting up someone themselves.

As that is not possible, any protest would have to take the form of a procedural challenge -a token attempt to stop the nomination of First Minister going ahead.

Ukip's Welsh leader Nathan Gill is expected to set out the case for Wales to leave the European Union at the party's spring conference in Llandudno.

He's expected to call for the devolution of fishing to the Welsh Assembly if the UK exits the EU and if there's a leave vote Mr Gill says it would help protect farmers and put power back into the hands of the people.

A recent ITV Wales / Cardiff University opinion poll put the leave camp on course for victory in Wales at June's referendum.

Mr Gill is expected to call on activists to give every last ounce of effort insisting there's only 16 weeks left to change the course of history for good.
