Green leadership race heats up

Green leadership race heats up
The race to become the next leader of the Green party has heated up after two candidates announced their bids to replace Caroline Lucas.

Peter Cranie, who describes himself as an anti-racism activist, launched his candidacy today, seeking to define the Greens against the Coalition’s austerity agenda.

"There's a large sector of the electorate that's vehemently opposed to the austerity agenda... And the only party offering them the policies they want is the Green Party", he told BusinessGreen.

Pippa Bartolotti, spokeswoman for the Welsh Green Party announced her bid yesterday, stating on Facebook: "The Greens need to open up the debate and forge a robust direction. Maybe I'm too straight talking for some, but I am prepared to stand up and tell it like it is."

Ms Lucas confirmed last month that she would not be seeking another term as leader.
