The Green Party yesterday elected its new co-leaders who pledged to focus on getting into power rather than on protest.

Carla Denyer, a Bristol city councillor and parliamentary candidate, and Adrian Ramsay, a former deputy leader of the party, were chosen to replace Jonathan Bartley and Sian Berry.

Miss Denyer said that while the Greens agreed with many of Insulate Britain’s aims, the party did not ‘necessarily agree’ with the group’s tactics, which have seen members block stretches of motorway multiple times in the last three weeks.

She added: ‘We are at a crucial moment in history and it is clear that the other major political parties have failed to bring about the change that is necessary.

‘More than ever before, it is vital that Green policies are adopted for the benefit of our climate and our communities.’

Amelia Womack and Tamsin Omond came second in the election. 

Miss Womack remains the party’s deputy leader.
