The leader of the Welsh Conservatives says he senses an appetite for a new kind of collaborative Welsh politics.
Andrew RT Davies made the comments following the stalemate vote in the Assembly for the First Minister appointment.
The Welsh Tory leader also said that Labour had no right to assume Carwyn Jones would take the role following a disappointing election.
Last week, less than 16% of voters backed the status quo and another five years of Labour. Having seen their share of the vote drop by 8%, many voters across Wales moved away from Labour last week and, crucially, the Party did not win a majority at the 2016 election.
"As such, Labour had no divine right to assume the First Ministership today.
"It is for new Assembly Members to explore, and discuss, the best way forward for the Welsh nation, which has for too long fallen behind the rest of the UK. "Certainly, I sense an appetite for a new kind of collaborative Welsh politics, and would welcome further discussions to build on those which led to today's vote. Our ambitious manifesto was packed full of ideas we believe could make a difference to people across the country. As we analyse the impact of the new election results on Wales, Welsh Conservatives remain steadfastly committed to delivering for communities across the country."
Carwyn Jones includes repealing the UK government's new restrictions on public sector strikes in his legislative programme.
