The 2011 Manifesto was entitled “2nd vote Green” – with the party trying to focus on regional top up lists. The party pledged to defend public services and build a low carbon economy. They offered a ‘Green New Deal’ that would support local businesses and create 50,000 sustainable jobs. They underlined their opposition to nuclear power, and expressed a wish to follow Scotland’s lead in offering free social fare for the elderly.
They won around 4% of the regional vote in Wales, not enough to deliver a seat. They would need to double their vote to be in a position to be able to press for a seat.
