"If you want action on climate change and not spin and rhetoric only the Greens can deliver." - Caroline Lucas

The Green Party was originally founded for the 2005 election and contested the elections for the first three Parliaments, steadily winning at least 5% of the votes and coming fifth behind the Liberal Democrats, Labour, Conservatives, and the Loonies on all occasions.

Following this, the party became inactive and was closed. Despite several attempts to reform the party since its deletion in Parliament III, it was not until the party was proposed again at the end of Parliament XV that the Green Party was given permission to reform by the Speaker. The Green Party were then able to contest the election for parliament XVI, in which they won 5 seats.

After the election, the Party became active and accepted in the House very quickly. They contested By-Election III jointly with the Liberal Democrats and came in third. Continuing to grow, The Greens' greatest electoral success till that time came in Aug/Sept 2013 (Parliament XVII) when they won 8 seats with more than 12% of the vote and narrowly came third behind Labour and the Conservatives - both on 9 seats- with a gap of fewer than 20 votes out of about 500.

Following this election the Party formed a coalition with Labour, following the previous parliament where they were allied with the Socialists and became a member of the first ever coalition to form HM Loyal Opposition in the Parliament.

Following the March 2014 Election, although the Party lost several seats, they were able use their electoral position to aid in the formation of a three-way coalition between the Greens, Labour, and the Socialists, thereby becoming a member of the new coalition government, entering government for the very first time.

In the September 2014 election the Party got its best ever result achieving 13 seats. They used this to form a three-way coalition between the Greens, Labour, and the Liberal parties, leading the nicknamed 'traffic light coalition' and pathing the way to the first Green Prime Minister and the start of an eco-government.

In July 2015, the Party led a coalition with UKIP and the Liberals after the collapse of the Labour/Liberal coalition and the VoNC of the minority Labour government that followed. This coalition was short-lived, collapsing a few weeks after its formation due to a constitutional crisis caused by disputes over who should take the role of acting Prime Minister in the absence of Kittiara, the third Green Prime Minister in history. The crisis was so severe that the Speaker, Birchington, took the decision that there would be no government for the next three months until the next general election, in which the Greens halved their vote and seat share.

Following the third vote review of the 23rd Parliament, one of their MPs and Party Leader, Andy98, was found to have a voting record for the previous four weeks of less than 70%, his second low vote record of the term. Following an amendment a few months ago, which stated if you have a vote record below 70% during any two review periods, your seat will be removed, and put up for by-election, the Green Party lost one of their four seats, now leaving them with three.

In October 2016, Andy98 resigned as Leader of the Green Party. Kyx won the ensuing election, much to the surprise of the majority of the house with Barnetlad and Lime-man being seen as frontrunners. Lime-man was then elected Chair of the Green Party, with Barnetlad resigning and retiring from the MHoC.

In the November 2016 General Election, the Green Party failed to submit their manifesto and thus did not obtain a single seat. Leader Kyx and Chair Lime-man both resigned leaving the Party with no leadership with a Deputy Leadership contest being carried out at the time. Andy98 was elected Deputy Leader of the Party and became Leader once again. Kyx defected to the Liberals.
