‘Tough times’ for the Greens as they bid for leadership

The Green Party is struggling with a tough winter as it tries to claw back some of its lost ground and make some headway towards the next general election.

It has not ruled out a leadership challenge in the future but there are no guarantees as to who will step up.

The party’s leader, Ms Green, said she was still trying to assess the situation and said she would make a decision in the coming days.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do,” she said.

“We’ve done a lot and we’ve got some work to go, but at the end of the day we’re here to run the party.”

It’s tough times and we need to do more than that, we need a bit of leadership, but we need people in there who can bring about change.

“Ms Green has been in a minority position in the party for some time but is expected to succeed Ms Adams in the leadership contest next year.

The Greens are the third most popular political party in the UK, according to the latest ComRes survey.

The poll also found that the Greens have the third-highest proportion of voters in England, Scotland and Wales in the general election in 2020.
