Today, we congratulate Caroline Lucas on being elected for the third time in Brighton Pavilion.
Caroline was re-elected with 30,159 votes, an increase of 10.4% with a huge majority of 14,869. Caroline will once again be our sole serving member of Parliament.
Young Greens Co-Chair, Sam Murray said:
"We are incredibly pleased to see such an excellent MP returned to Parliament, where she can continue to work hard for people and planet. We are disappointed to not see more Green MPs, particularly in Bristol West, Isle of Wight, Sheffield Central and Bath, where we fought strong campaigns but congratulate the local parties there for their hard work in standing up for what matters."
