Two candidates in Jersey elections fail to declare expenses

Two candidates who were not elected in last year's election have failed to let the authorities know how much they spent on their campaigns.

The public elections law states that candidates have 15 working days after the poll to tell the Judicial Greffier how much they spent.

But the States heard this week that two people who stood as deputies had failed to do so, but they were not named.

The fixed amount for Senators is £2,700 and £1,600 for Constables and Deputies.

In addition to the fixed sum, candidates can spend a further 11p per registered elector in their constituency.

Failure to comply with the provisions can lead to prosecution.
