Caroline Lucas: Former Green Party leader to stand down at next election | Politics News

Former Green Party leader Caroline Lucas is stepping down at the next general election.

In a letter sent to her Brighton Pavilion constituents, Ms Lucas said it had been the “privilege of my life to serve this extraordinary constituency and community”.

Ms Lucas said the “threats to our precious planet” had become “ever more urgent”, but that her role in parliament as the Green Party’s only MP meant she had “struggled to spend the time I want on these accelerating crises”.

“I have therefore decided not to stand again as your MP at the next election,” she said.
