Caroline Lucas MP, Green Party Co-Leader, has decided not to re-stand at the end of her current two-year term of office which ends in September. Caroline Lucas will continue to hold the government to account on issues of environmental and social policy as an MP.
Cllr Louis Stephen, coordinator of Worcester Green Party, said, "The Green Party is not defined by its leadership and is careful to elect its leaders for two years at a time. Effectively this means that from day one, our leaders are 'put on notice' and our policy puts democratic power firmly with ordinary party members rather than any kind of top down hierarchy. This strategy has meant that we have avoided any leadership cults or the divided infighting we have seen in other Westminster parties.
This Government is failing on so many fronts but especially on Brexit. It is becoming clear that a hopelessly divided Conservative Party is seriously letting the British people down. The Windrush scandal is just one of many examples showing that the government has lost touch with the British sense of fairness. We will continue to fight for settled EU citizens in this county and the most vulnerable in our society such as the homeless."
