Penguin medico to run for Greens Braddon Federal seat

Greens Tasmania

Penguin doctor Darren Briggs will run for the Tasmanian Greens in Braddon next year's Federal election.

Dr Briggs unsuccessfully contested this year's State election as Braddon candidate for the Greens.

His candidature was announced by the Greens at the weekend, revealing they will run five candidates in the House of Representatives and three in the Senate.

Southern-based environmental activist Liz Johnstone will run for Lyons, while the Greens' three Senate candidates will be Vanessa Bleyer and Tabatha Badger and sitting Senator Peter Wihish-Wilson.
