The election will take place online from 16-23 June.
The primary is open to anyone who registered to vote before last Friday – registration was open to anyone online. All you had to do was agree to values put forth in the global Greens charter, and donate a minimum of 10 euros to the party.
The party, which held a pre-election national conference two weeks ago, has assured voters that the list will not be made public, and that it is indeed a secret ballot.
In the next two days, those who registered will be sent a package, including the candidates’ statements and a login and password to vote online, although those who want to can vote by mail.
The four candidates are:
- TV personality Nicolas Hulot;
- Former magistrate and MEP Eva Joly;
- Anti-nuclear activist Stephane Lhomme;
- Henri Stoll, the mayor of Kayserberg in Alsace.
Results will be known on 29 June – with a second round of voting planned for the week after if there is no clear winner.
