Prominent 'Green' voice replaced by German party

West Germany's best-known ''Green,'' Petra Kelly, and other party leaders have been voted out of party jobs and replaced by an all-woman team. A nine-hour meeting of the antinuclear, ecologist party decided Tuesday night to dismiss Ms. Kelly and its two other spokemen, Otto Schily and Marieluise Beck-Oberdorf.

They were chosen to represent the party for a year after the Greens won seats in the Bundestag, West Germany's lower house, for the first time in the general elections of March 1983.
