Elections 2018: Update on Candidates

Standing for Election: The Story So Far

There will certainly be Senatorial contests, and if all the existing Senators (apart from Paul Routier, who is standing down) stand, there will be casualties.

With regard to Deputies, and an exception in Trinity, most of the contested elections will come from Parishes with larger populations - St Helier, St Saviour, , St Brelade, St Clement. It is much harder to take on sitting Deputies in a smaller Parish.

There is now one contested Constable election in St Mary, and one in St Brelade, with the remaining 10 having only one candidate. I would think St Lawrence would be vulnerable over the handling of the church dispute, and I hear that St Saviour might face a contest.

Uncontested Constables: so far, 10
Uncontested Deputies: so far, 2 1/2 Parishes out of 12, 3 Deputies Seats.

Interesting that the three uncontested deputy elections are for those with strong record on environment and planning - John Young, Carolyn Labey and Steve Luce.
