Green Party membership now higher than LibDems and UKIP
Jan 15, 2015
The Green party now has more members than Ukip and the Liberal Democrats after gaining more than 2,000 supporters in the last day alone.
The surge in support coincides with a blaze of publicity for the Greens over their exclusion from the proposed televised leaders’ debates because they are not considered a major party. The criteria for being classed as major does not include membership but is based on a party’s standing in opinion polls and success in elections.
However, supporters have been rushing to sign up all the same, meaning the Greens now have 44,713 members across their three UK parties – just ahead of the Lib Dems. This makes them the fourth biggest UK-wide party in terms of membership, although the Scottish National party has a much bigger base of around 92,000.
