Mr Gormley, who lost his Dáil seat in the general election, told party members in an email that he would not be seeking re-election.
In an email to party members, Mr Gormley described the party’s performance in the election, which saw it lose all six of its Dail seats, as a “temporary demise”.
The party will hold a meeting of its national executive council at the end of this month, before its annual general meeting in May. It is hoping to initiate a strategy for the next local elections in three years’ time.
Under party rules, a leadership contest must be held within six months of an election.
Senator Dan Boyle, party chairman, would not be drawn today on whether he would contest the leadership. But he was confident the party could rebuild. “It’s not a unique experience,” he said. “The German Greens, the Belgian Greens and the Czech Greens have all had similar experiences. It’s something of a rite of passage almost for the Green Party in terms of their first experience of parliament, their first experience of government.”
Senator Niall Ó Brolcháin said Mr Gormley had been considering his future since the election and felt it was time to go. “The election performances of the party haven’t been exactly very positive, the local election and the recent national election,” he said. “He had decided himself that it is time for him to go. I think there will be a lot of respect for that decision. Obviously there was a bit of a punishing time in Government.”
These gangsters should be in Jail
They have destroyed the green party and have shown themselves to be just as corrupt and attracted to power and perks .Goemely is sitting pretty with his big pension and why wouldn’t he now set off into the sunset while the rest of the country sinks under a mountain of debt that he helped to shove on to the shoulders of the taxpayers of this country
I say good riddance to the lot of them .they should not be allowed to benefit from the nations misfortune they helped bring about !

If you dont know the nuts and bolts you dont get it
The Greens might have been in the distant past a grass root enviormental movement. The Communists changed from red to green to use enviormental movements as a method of controling peoples.
Enter Gormless and his type sponsored by Rockerfellers and Rothchild Banks to hijack Green movements make communt governments in the EU and spin the lies about CO2 from the club of Romes decision to find a type of pollution, that can be hijacked to control sociecty and unltimatly make all the EU a communist run empire.
Naturally Gormless doesnt care he is a puppet to his masters in the Tri lateral globalists who we filmed in Ireland at the Tri Lateral meeting in Four season Hotel Ballsbridge Dublin . They were there engineering the take down of Eire and all Europe
Gormless is a traitor to the nation along with FF Mehall Martin . The then minister for forgien affairs and the then Atorney general Paul Gallagher (Barcellona Bilderberg attendee )aided and abieted the escape from legal justice from a european war crimes arrest warrant for the Henry Kissinger who was in Ireland on that occasion may 8th 2010( Film evidence at youtube/user/dcbourbonireland)
If you think FG blue shirts are any better forget it they are just as bad puppets and got the head globalist of the European Tri lateral Peter Sutherland and linked to globalist Bildergberg movement into high positions in Ireland which launched him into the EU empire
The real power structure in Ireland for many year up to now is the Head of state the Toichioch gets his instructions from the Governer general who the Bilderbergs have chosen well in advance .The Atorney general gets his instructions from the Bilderberg annual meeting and ensure the Irish state does thier bidding .
Everything we see on RTE and similar main stream mussled media is a dog and pony show to confuse us.
The Rockerfeller and Rothchild families decide in advance what laws we Irish will have and ensure the loop holes are there for them to drive the Globalist agenda and thier communist bus projects through. Ask yoself why they can never get the child protection laws done correctly .Its manditory in the Globalists religion that they can have sex with young children and have legal loop holes there to protect them if they ever get caught
So now do we get a new puppet Kenny who will take his instructions from the communist hijacked Labour party position wearing pinky camoflage and they ensured they now got e the Atorney General position who up to now has always been the true head of the Irish state( Ireland Inc.) .
If she goes to Bilderberg meeting in Switerland 29th june 2012 this year you will know the globalists and communists have taken more control for Ireland
Ask yourself why does Labour NEEEED the Irish constitution changed . Is the present Irish constitution blocking thier communist agenda to break up the Irish family unit so that all children will go into government dorm at birth and parent will rarely see them ??? All the more access for the Globalist peodofiles to gain accesss to even more young unprotected children
WATCH EVERTHING THE PRESENT AND PAST ATORNEY GENERAL’S DO THAT IS THE REAL POWER IN IRELAND
The rest like Gormelss and kenny are muppets
