CAROLINE LUCAS AND JONATHON BARTLEY ELECTED GREEN CO-LEADERS

By Joe Young - Politics Editor

Caroline Lucas and Jonathon Bartley have succeeded in their campaign to be elected Co-Leaders of the Green Party of England and Wales. Winning a landslide 86% of the vote, Lucas took up a second-term as leader, but this time with privately-educated Bartley at her side.

The Green Party’s constitution requires elections every two years, which caused the standing-down of former leader Natalie Bennett.

The election has come under fire from some Green members, however, with one saying:

Caroline Lucas is doing this purely for her own reasons. She’s already got a spotlight and is has snatched it from another one of our range of talents.”
