Greens Leader Cassy O'Connor has announced the lead candidates running for the 2022 Tasmanian state election.

Ms Johnstone said she planned on going from "village to village" along the stretching electorate of Lyons to speak with residents and understand their issues.
"Tackling climate change, and building strong, resilient, caring communities will better protect us from the challenges we face today and into the future," she said.
"The people in the electorate of Lyons, the heart of Tasmania, with its many diverse and unique towns and villages, deserve a Green in parliament.
"Some people call the Greens the party of the future, I'm standing for the Greens because I understand we are the party of now. The climate emergency, the relentless attack on nature, rampant social inequality is now, and the solution is now."
The candidate for Bass is Jack Davenport - who ran for the party in last year's Legislative Council election for the seat of Rosevears. He received 1713 first preference votes and was the second candidate excluded from the race.
The social worker has worked in child services across Australia, and was an elected local government member in the UK.
Mr Davenport said he is passionate about social justice and climate action.
"I am committed to a fairer and climate-ready future for Tasmania, and I am proud to represent the Greens in Bass," he said.
"I'm here to commit to delivering climate action, developing sustainability, and bringing integrity to Bass politics and Tasmanian politics as a whole.
"I'm looking forward to the opportunity to promoting greater equality in society, and helping families that are struggling under poor housing, that are struggling with poverty, and are struggling under family and domestic violence, and that's the basis on which I intend to stand."
In Braddon, the candidate is emergency doctor and general practitioner Dr Darren Briggs.
Working directly with the community on the frontline at the Mersey Community Hospital, and as a locum GP across the greater North West Coast, Dr Briggs said that the "climate emergency is a medical emergency", and that he and the party were committed to keeping both the Mersey Community and North West Regional Hospitals running to service the community.
"I was proud to be one of the 250 doctors who wrote to the Premier, asking him to put the health of Tasmanians first by protecting Tasmania's carbon stores and ending native forest logging," Dr Briggs said.
"As both a doctor and father, I understand it is essential to make socially-just, environmentally sustainable decisions. As a small tourist accommodation operator, I can also see first-hand how protecting our wild places, which make the North West so special, also makes economic sense.
"I am standing for the Greens because they, ultimately, put the long term health of people first - my kids, your kids, our family and friends."
