Many thanks to everybody who voted for me in the election. It is great to see so many people willing to lend their support to Green policies, and every vote the party received is a public show of support for sustainable policies. Unfortunately the result has been very disappointing for the party. Nevertheless the party remains full of dedicated and committed individuals who will not stop fighting for Green issues. I hope the party can rebuild and use this opportunity to take a step back and renew our policies and refresh our ideas.
