Half of Guernsey parish elections deferred

Half of Guernsey's contested parish elections have been deferred to a later date with a full election.

Four elections were due to be decided at parish meetings on Wednesday by show of hands, but only two were decided.

Parishioners in St Saviour decided on a full douzenier election, with polling stations open between 1000-2000 GMT on 17 November.

St Peter Port's constable election has also been deferred for the same times and date.

In the Forest Keith Bienvenu topped the poll with 38 votes, Dr Steven Mowbray came one vote behind, while Ann Sharkerly was the third successful candidate with 33.

David Winch was the only unsuccessful candidate after polling just 10 votes.

In the Castel John Cook, Graeme Cox and Robert Marquis were elected as douzeniers.

They will take up their posts when the current offices expire in December.
