Rwanda’s Green Party sets new milestone

The European Green Party wishes to congratulate the Democratic Green Party of Rwanda after its success in parliamentary elections on 3 September.  The party won 5% of the national vote, allowing them to enter parliament for the first time with 2 seats.

European Green Party co-chairs Reinhard Bütikofer, Monica Frassoni and Committee Member Evelyne Huytebroeck made the following comments:

“We congratulate Rwandan Green party leader Frank Habineza and Secretary General Jean-Claude Ntezimana for their successful campaign in the parliamentary elections.

“This is an important victory for the Rwandan Green party, which is now in a position to help shape the East African country’s future. 

“The consequences of climate change are most severely felt on the African continent.  We hope this victory will help put climate and sustainability firmly on the agenda.”
