Northern Ireland Green to go for all island Chair…

It seems that John Barry co-chair of the Northern Ireland Regional Council of the Green Party, is to run for chair of the Green Party in Ireland. He states he made his decision:

“…in the context of being in government in the Republic and in opposition on the Northern Ireland Assembly, we need more than ever an all island focus and a focus on members, innovation, imagination and creativity to realise the opportunities for the Party to herald a new configuration of politics not only on this island, but between these islands.”
