Agreement reached over Dafydd Elis Thomas future

Plaid Cymru says the party's former leader Dafydd Elis Thomas no longer faces possible deselection as a candidate in next year's Assembly election.

Plaid's National Executive was due to discuss tomorrow his criticisms of party leader Leanne Wood and the Westminster election campaign.

But earlier this week Lord Elis Thomas was backed by his constituency party in Dwyfor Meirionnydd after he agreed not to criticise Plaid Cymru policy again without discussing it with them first.

The discussions have come to an end. An agreement is in place between the constituency, Dafydd Elis-Thomas and the National Executive Committee. We will not be making any further statements on this matter.
