Statement on the passing of Rhodri Morgan - Mark Williams

Following the passing of former First Minister Rhodri Morgan, Mark Williams pays tribute to "an extremely charismatic and engaging leader."

“Rhodri Morgan will be remembered for leading Wales in those early years, putting Welsh politics on an even footing. In what was a difficult early period for devolution, Rhodri built a coalition to deliver on the promise of devolution.

“He will be remembered as an extremely charismatic and engaging leader, and the kind words we have heard from so many today show the enormous respect and admiration for Rhodri.

“Rhodri will be hugely missed and my thoughts are with family and friends at this difficult time.”

Following the passing of Rhodri Morgan the Welsh Liberal Democrats have suspended all doorstep campaigning for the day.
