Vix Lowthion’s first entry into Green Party politics was when she stood as the Green candidate on the Isle of Wight in the 2015 General Elections.
Come 8th May, the day after the election, it transpired that she’d increased the green vote on the Island by a factor of ten, from 2010.
She was later selected as the leader of the Party on the Isle of Wight.
Now, the National Green Party has just announced that she’s been selected to take on the role as their spokesperson for Education.
Vix told OnTheWight,
“It’s such an honour to take on this enormous brief after a relatively short time in the Green Party.
“From an Isle of Wight point of view, improving access and standards for education is very much a priority.
“I am really looking forward to translating our policies into action and leading our schools and colleges and universities towards an improved future for our young people.”
Commenting on the selection of new spokespeople, Green Party leader, Natalie Bennett said
“We’re delighted to unveil this list of talented, passionate spokespeople whose expertise can only help boost the party’s reputation and help draw even more attention to Green Party values and policies.
“I am proud that nearly 60% of our new spokespeople are female, that a quarter of our spokespeople are people of colour or from minority ethnicities and that an eighth are LGBTIQ. This is a reflection of the Green Party’s commitment to promoting diversity and inclusiveness at all levels.”
