Jason Kitcat re-elected as Green party leader on Brighton and Hove council
The official announcement was made today following a ballot of all party members and councillors.
Councillor Ruth Buckley was elected as deputy for external communications and councillor Ian Davey was re-elected as internal convenor.
Because the Green's are a minority administration these councillors will be proposed at the Annual Council meeting as leader and deputies of the council.
Councillor Kitcat, who has faced down a number of leadership challenges this year, was re-elected after gaining the majority of the vote of the councillors with second placed Phelim MacCafferty taking the majority of votes of party members.
Coun Kitcat said: "I'd like to thank all candidates who stood in our annual convenor elections. I'm delighted to have been re-elected with the highest ever support from Green Group members. I am committed to working with all Green colleagues through the challenges our city faces in the coming year."
Coun Phélim MacCafferty added: "I'm pleased and grateful that I have received the support and confidence of the Green Party membership. A huge thank you to my many supporters. Working with the Green Group I look forward to taking our shared vision forward."
