Alice Hooker-Stroud becomes Britain's youngest political party leader

The Wales Green Party has elected Alice Hooker-Stroud, a 31 year-old charity worker, as its new leader, making her the youngest political party leader in Britain.

 

Hooker-Stroud, from Machynlleth in Powys, becomes the party's leader ahead of the Welsh Assembly election in May 2016 where it is aiming to win its first seat.

Hooker-Stroud said:

"This is an exciting time for the Wales Green Party, we enter the Welsh Assembly election as a determined and energetic party, we can and we will win seats.

"The Wales Green Party has the solutions to many of the problems we face in our communities. Solutions that tackle not just social, but environmental problems, solutions not just for local problems, but global problems too."

"We stood in 36 out of 40 constituencies at the General Election in May and with a surge in membership, I'm looking forward to working with Alice for a successful Welsh Assembly election in 2016, where the far fairer electoral system means voters can vote for what they believe in and get it."
