The battle for the Green Party’s soul
The Green Party is uniquely positioned within UK politics. Its voice has always been significant in putting climate change on the political agenda.
Today, the party finds itself in uncharted territory. As the climate emergency grows more serious by the day, the Greens could be afforded the political space to cement themselves as a serious political force in England and Wales.
The resignation of co-leader Jonathan Bartley, and Sian Berry’s decision not to seek re-election, has set off arguably the most intriguing leadership contest in the party’s history. There are three co-leadership bids and two individuals in the running to become the new leaders or leader of the Green Party.
In this in-depth feature, Politics.co.uk speaks to the candidates vying to chart the Green Party’s future course in British politics.
