– Leanne Wood AM, Plaid Cymru leader
Alun Ffred will leave a huge void when the time comes for him to leave the Assembly. His balanced opinion, wise leadership and subtle humour have won him respect across the parties.
He will continue to serve his electors with the same enthusiasm and energy over the next three years.
Alun Fred Jones, Plaid Cymru AM for Arfon, says he will step down at the next Assembly election.
