Dafydd Elis-Thomas has issued the following statement after being moved from Energy to Rural Affairs:
Moving Dafydd Elis-Thomas from the Energy portfolio is clearly a direct result of his vocal support for a new nuclear power station on Anglesey during the leadership election campaign. Another rival, Elin Jones, retains her Health portfolio and early contender Simon Thomas also keeps Education.

In an otherwise minor reshuffle of her front bench team, Leanne Wood's main change is to move her leadership rival Dafydd Elis-Thomas from Environment and Energy to Rural Affairs. He'd been outspoken in his support for building a new nuclear power station on Anglesey, something Ms Wood opposes.
The announcement of the new leader of Plaid Cymru draws closer, with the counting of ballot papers set to begin at 12pm.
Outgoing Plaid Cymru leader Ieuan Wyn Jones talks about what qualities he thinks a party leader should have, in an interview with ITV Wales.
"The key thing is to be yourself and not to be something you're not, and actually to develop your own style" he says.
"Over time I think people respect that a lot more than if you try artificially to be somebody you're not. "
