Labour denies it will form coalition with other parties

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 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.
