Young Green members threaten to quit if Marama Davidson loses

The race for the Green party's new co-leader is proving divisive, with some party members threatening to quit if their favourite doesn't win.

Julie Anne Genter and Marama Davidson are facing off to be the new female co-leader, to fill the role left vacant since Metiria Turei resigned in August last year.

A small group, less than ten, of Ms Davidson's supporters in the Young Greens have threatened to quit if she loses according to Stuff.

The new female co-leader will be announced this Sunday, after the election process in which delegates vote on behalf of the Green members in electorates across the country.

The Young Greens declined to comment to Newshub.
