The Green Party has named its candidate to run for London Mayor next year.

London Assembly Member, Jenny Jones, has been selected as the party's London Mayoral candidate, after a ballot of party members in London showed she had won a comfortable 67% of the
vote.

Jenny Jones said: "At this time of savage cuts to essential services, London needs a Mayor who will create a fairer city and reduce the gap between rich and poor. These are hard times for people who care
about quality services, local businesses, and protecting the most vulnerable members of our communities. I promise to make fighting cuts to housing benefit, the NHS and youth services a key part of my campaign to be Mayor."
