The party has a live tracker on its website logging the number of people who have joined since July 4. At the time of writing, the tracker stands at 3,054.

Green Party Deputy leader Zack Polanski told Left Foot Forward: “Over 3,000 people have joined the Green Party since the election.

“This is hugely positive and a demonstration that people support our calls for real change from the new Government.

“When people see our four MPs in action – delivering locally for their constituents and contributing the big ideas nationally – I hope even more people will want to join our party for real hope and real change.”
