Party Introduction

Green political party. Favours British republicanism. Source: Wikipedia

Formed in 1990 after the former Green Party split into three parties (along with the Scottish Green Party and Green Party in Northern Ireland), the Green Party of England and Wales is led by Natalie Bennett, who took up the position of party leader in September 2012.

Although the Green Party has often been seen as a 'single issue' environmentalist party, it supports communitarian economic policies and proportional representation, taking a progressive approach to social policies that include drug policy reform, animal rights, LGBT rights etc.

Originally formed as the People Party in 1972, the party changed name to The Ecology Party in 1975, settling on the Green Party in 1985. Their first leadership election process was in September 2008 when Caroline Lucas became their leader until 2012.

At the last general election in 2010 Lucas retained her seat as MP for Brighton Pavilion, giving the party one MP in the Houses of Parliament, one member of the House of Lords, three MEPs in the European Parliament and two members of the London Assembly.
