As widely expected, Metiria Turei has been elected co-leader of the Greens.
The new team of Norman and Turei will certainly be younger then the previous leadership. Neither of them have much of an environmental background, but neither did Bradford.
I doubt this will affect their poll ratings much. The Greens are one of the few parties where the party’s brand is far more dominant than the leader’s brand. Having said that Fitzsimons and Donald both exuded a certain warmth that their sucessors have yet to demonstrate in public.Tags: Greens, Metiria Turei
