Talks are now taking place to try to form administrations in the 9 local authorities left without one party or grouping in overall control. A Labour source tells me the party is set to form alliances with Independent councillors in order to take charge of Vale of Glamorgan, Flintshire and Wrexham.
Labour expects to be in opposition in Denbighshire, Pembrokeshire and Monmouthshire. It says discussions are ongoing in Carmarthenshire and expects Conwy's power-sharing arrangement, known by some as an 'anti-Tory' coalition, to continue. A Plaid source agrees that that scenario is likely in Conwy.
Plaid's also said it wants to talk to other parties and independents in Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire. I understand the Conservative and Liberal Democrat groups in Monmouthshire are in talks, but have no more details on that yet. I'll update you when I do.

It's business as usual in the Assembly but each of the three opposition parties have been speaking about their local election defeats.
