Plaid Cymru and a number of independent councillors have agreed to form a coalition to run the council following the loss of overall control by Labour. The council leader will be the independents’ Steve Hunt and his deputy Alun Llewelyn, leader of Plaid Cymru on the council. Liberal Democrat and Green councillors have decided not to join the coalition but will support it where necessary to ensure smooth running of the county borough.
Cllr. Helen Ceri Clarke, Leader of the Coedffranc Liberal and Green Group group commented:
“Public opinion is fundamental to democracy and people in Neath Port Talbot have obviously voted for change. By entering into a confidence and supply agreement, we can help facilitate this change, whilst retaining our independent voice on the council and representing the best interests of residents.”Leave a comment
