Principal Speaker in Electoral Reform Society call
'We have moved to a new system of electing a Leader and Deputy or co-leaders, the system needs to be fair and transparent. It is appropriate that it is undertaken by an outside body, the Electoral Reform Society run leadership contests for the other major political parties, it is time for us to do the same in the Green Party of England and Wales.
Democracy matters.' said Dr Derek Wall, Principal Speaker of the Green Party.
