Green Party members have voted to amend the party constitution to allow for the election of a leader. The decision was taken by a large majority vote among delegates at a convention in Dublin at the weekend. It is expected that a leadership election will take place before the Dáil summer recess at the end of next month. Since its inception almost 20 years ago, the Green Party has not had an individual leader. One of its two TDs, John Gormley, said that he would endorse Trevor Sargent TD in any contest. The party also has two MEPs, Patricia McKenna and Nuala Ahern.
