Jill Stein announced on Thursday that she is entering the 2024 presidential race as a candidate for the Green Party, criticising the two major parties for failing to address issues like climate change and inequality.
“The political systm is broken,” she said in an announcement video on social media. “The two Wall Street parties are bought and paid for. Over 60 per cent of us now say the bispartisan establishment has failed us and we need a party that serves the people.”
“We’ll put solutions to the crises we face,” she added. “Crushing inequality, endless war, and climate collapse…The ruling parties that got us into this mess aren’t getting us out.”
Mr Stein ran for president in 2016 with the Green Party.
