Jonathan Bartley and Sian Berry have been elected Co-leaders of the Green Party of England and Wales, receiving 74 per cent of votes cast.

Meanwhile, Amelia Womack was re-elected as Deputy Leader and will now serve a third term in the post. Womack received 3,981 votes out of a total 7,369 votes cast, placing ahead of Andrew Cooper, Rashid Nix and Jonathan Chilvers respectively.
