Luc Who Is Favourite To Be Next Leader Of The Greens

Bookmakers William Hill have installed Caroline Lucas as odds-on favourite to succeed Natalie Bennett as leader of the Greens.

William Hill make her 4/6 favourite (representing 60% chance) to regain the leadership, but have Amelia Womack as 3/1 second favourite, with Shahrar Ali the 5/1 third favourite.

'Our initial thoughts are that this looks like a three horse race, but political leadership campaigns are notoriously unpredictable – just ask Andy Burnham and Yvette Cooper, who lost out to 200/1 outsider, Jeremy Corbyn for the Labour leadership' said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

To be next elected leader of the Green Party: 4/6 Caroline Lucas; 3/1 Amelia Womack; 5/1 Shahrar Ali; 20/1 Pippa Barlotti; Darren Johnson; Esther Obiri-Darko; Rupert Read; Caroline Russell; Molly Scott; 25/1 Patrick Harvie; Richard Mallender; Anthony Slaughter. Others on request.
