Welsh Labour MP Jo Stevens is backing Owen Smith in the Labour leadership contest.
The Cardiff Central MP had been considered as one of Jeremy Corbyn's most loyal supporters - she was one of 40 MPs who refused to back the no confidence motion in their leader.
But she has now told supporters she will back the Pontypridd MP in the leadership contest.
In an email to party members, Ms Stevens wrote: "During the past two weeks it has become painfully obvious that we have been unable to fulfil the very basic day to day operation as the official opposition in Parliament.
"We cannot present ourselves as a government in waiting without leadership and a leadership team that commands the respect and support of not only members....but Labour voters and potential Labour voters."
The Pontypridd MP Owen Smith will today launch his bid to be the next leader of the Labour Party
The ex-shadow cabinet minister will set out his vision for the future direction of the party at his constituency.
Owen Smith has explained the reason he is standing is because of the party's peril of a "disastrous split" and he's not prepared to let that happen.
He added "it falls to a new generation of Labour MPs to step forward and secure Labour's future. I am the only person in this race than can do that."
He says he chose to launch his leadership bid in Pontypridd because his politics are rooted in the community.
Billions of pounds of EU funding for Wales cannot simply be replaced by Westminster, Alun Cairns has suggested.
The Welsh Secretary said it "misses the point" to shift the source of aid from the EU to Westminster after the majority of people in Wales voted to leave the union three weeks ago.
Wales currently receives billions of pounds from EU funding programmes, however the Vale of Glamorgan MP reassured Wales would not suffer heavily under Brexit and insisted it would receive its "fair share".
Leader of the Welsh Conservatives Andrew RT Davies has said Boris Johnson's appointment as Foreign Secretary in Theresa May's new cabinet is 'fantastic'.
The rest of the appointments to the new Government are still being made.
The First Minister has offered his congratulations to Theresa May now that she's been confirmed as the next Prime Minister. But Carwyn Jones says he hopes for a 'more measured approach' from the new Conservative leader on issues such as migration and the refugee crisis than in the past.
An exclusive ITV poll suggests Wales might vote to remain in the EU if the referendum was held again.
Almost two weeks after Wales voted to leave, the latest YouGov poll suggests 53% would vote REMAIN and 47% would be in favour of LEAVING.
The poll questioned just over a thousand Welsh adults and was carried out over the last four days.
Alexandra Lodge has been asking people in the Valleys who voted emphatically to leave if they were having a change of heart over the biggest decision made in a generation.
Vote Leave, the campaign that won last month's referendum, say the question has been settled. They were responding to an ITV Wales poll that suggests Welsh opinion has shifted in favour of remaining in the EU.
