Having won the largest number of seats in the 2007 election (26 out of 60) the Labour Party sought to form a coalition with a smaller party. However, this proved impossible, with all the other parties discussing a possible anti-Labour coalition. The Labour Party chose to go into minority government, and Rhodri Morgan was re-elected first minister on 26 May 2007.
