After just 77 days Welsh First Minister to face no confidence vote

  • Staff Writer


Welsh First Minister Vaughan Gething is set to face a vote of no confidence on June 5, 2024. The Welsh Conservatives have tabled this motion due to several controversies that have arisen during his short tenure. Gething, who became First Minister in March, has been criticized for accepting a £200,000 donation from a company owned by a man convicted of environmental offences. This has raised questions about his judgment and transparency.

Additionally, Gething’s decision to sack Social Partnership Minister Hannah Blythyn for allegedly leaking material to the media has added to the scrutiny. The motion comes after the collapse of a cooperation deal between Labour and Plaid Cymru, further complicating the political landscape in Wales​
