Commission’s politicians: Constables should stay
Friday 19th April 2013, 2:00PM BST.
ALL States Members who sat on the Electoral Commission have now come out in favour of keeping the Constables in the States after the final member publicly declared her support for Option B.
St Mary Constable Juliette Gallichan, who sat on the commission alongside chairman Senator Sir Philip Bailhache and Deputy James Baker, has nailed her colours to the mast in a letter in today’s JEP.
It follows similar announcements by the two other States Members on the commission ahead of the referendum on States reform next Wednesday, 24 April.
Dr Jonathan Renouf, meanwhile, is the only non-States Member of the commission to publicly confirm his views, which are in favour of Option A and removing the Constables from the States.
