This from the BBC:

Mike German has been confirmed as the new leader of the Liberal Democrats in Wales. The South Wales East AM replaces Montgomeryshire MP Lembit Opik, who had announced his decision to stand down.

Mr German has also retained his position as leader of the six Lib Dems in the Welsh assembly. He was the only nominee for both contests. He had already announced he will stand down from the role some time after the local council elections next May.

Lib Dem Assembly Member, Peter Black, has blogged his views here and here.
