Mark Drakeford resigned from the role back in December

Mark Drakeford regularly said that he would leave his role as Welsh First Minister midway through his term and has also said in the past that he would go in 2024.

Drakeford officially announced his resignation as the Welsh Labour Leader back in December 2023 and the replacement voting will take place from tomorrow.

The current Labour leader had received a criticism from voters for the expansion of 20mph zones as a default in residential areas in Wales.

Voting opens for the Welsh Leadership Election tomorrow, Friday 16 February

Voting officially opens for the Welsh Leadership Election on Friday 16 February and will run all the way up until 14 March.

By that date, we will know who will become the leader of the Welsh government and become the next First Minister.

Anyone who is a Labour member or part of an organisation affiliated to the Labour Part can take part in the voting.

This means that there will be around 100,000 people voting on the position with the public unable to vote on who will lead their country.
