Councillor in Green Party deputy contest.
THE Kirklees Green leader is in the running to be second in command of the national party.
Clr Andrew Cooper has formally been validated as a candidate for deputy leadership of the Green Party.
The contest has been sparked after leader Natalie Bennett decided to stand down.
Clr Cooper is running against incumbent joint deputy leaders Sharar Ali and Amelia Womack and four other candidates, Storm Poorun, Daniella Radice, Kat Boettge and Alan Borgars.
There are six candidates to be leader: Jonathan Bartley and Caroline Lucas (job share), Clive Lord, David Malone, Martie Warin and David Williams.
All paid-up Green Party members can vote and the result will be announced the Green Party's autumn conference in Birmingham in early September.
