Deputy Kristina Moore: I want to continue as minister

Rob Byrne

BBC News Online

Deputy Kristina Moore, who got the second highest number of votes in Jersey's island-wide senatorial election, says she wants to continue in her current position.

The home affairs minister told BBC Radio Jersey that despite her impressive support at the polls, she wasn't considering running for chief minister, describing the incumbent Senator Ian Gorst as a "truly exceptional person".

"I'm really grateful to everybody who has shown their faith in me by registering their vote. Given the amount of change that's going on in the States, I would very much like to continue at home affairs. I think there's a need for continuity. We've done a lot, and there's a lot more to do."

Who are St Lawrence's new deputies?

It's all change in St Lawrence, with two new deputies being elected.

BBC

Deputy-elect Kirsten Morel topped the poll with 1,499 votes. On parish issues, the technology writer and business owner has promised to review speed limits, protect the environment, and to set up a "Parish Island Plan working group" to look at future development.

Deputy-elect Gregory Guida won 1,194 votes in second place. He's already served St Lawrence as both a Constable's Officer and Centenier. He's promised to defend the parish system against "further centralisation".

Change is happening says unsuccessful senatorial candidate

BBC Radio Jersey

Ant Lewis, who missed out on a senatorial seat by fewer than 300 votes, has released a statement.

He said: "A difference is what Jersey needs. I want everyone, disabled and able bodied treated the same. There is Progress.

"I would like to thank all those who took the time and trouble to turn out and vote, especially those who put their faith in me. It is Changing. In Jersey. I am Proud!"

Reform Jersey: 'People will come and talk to us'

Rob Byrne

BBC News Online

One of Reform Jersey's politicians says their increase in numbers will mean they wield greater sway in Jersey's parliament.

Deputy Montford Tadier, who narrowly retained his seat in St Brelade, said the 2018 election was a "rollercoaster", but a last-minute "result" for the party despite only gaining five seats from 18 candidates.

Party chairman Sam Mezec got the eighth and final senator's place, while the party had a clean sweep in St Helier two, where Deputy Geoff Southern was re-elected, joined by newcomers Carina Alves and Rob Ward.

Deputy Montford Tadier
BBC

Deputy Tadier said: "We've got five members now, we had three."

"We've got wider representation across not just the political spectrum, but across the demographics in Jersey, who are represented."

"Those five votes in the States will mean that people will come and talk to us when they need to win votes and we can have policy discussions and say look, 'if we vote for you as minister, what are you going to do to progress our policies to make the island fairer?'."

No change to female representation in the States

Ben Chapple

BBC News Online

With two women topping the island-wide poll you would be forgiven for assuming the gender ratio in government was due to change.

However, although there will be three women serving as senators compared to one in the current term there are two fewer female deputies and the same number of female constables so overall there's no change - 8 of the 49 positions.

While the number may not be changing two of the female senator-elects are serving as ministers and would presumably hope to hold a senior position again.

With three women running ministries in the current States maybe more women will fill senior positions in the new government.

We'll have to wait until next month - when the internal States elections take place - to find out.

Jersey senator race: Analysis

Rob Byrne

BBC News Online

It's the first time two women have topped the poll for Jersey senators.

Home Affairs Minister Kristina Moore made the early running, but was overtaken by Deputy Tracey Vallois, who eventually topped the poll with more than 10% of the votes.

It was a really close battle for the final elected eighth spot, with Reform Jersey's Chairman Sam Mezec pipping first-timer Moz Scott by just 123 votes after he topped the polls in St Helier.

Here's the overall vote:

Vallois tops poll, Reform's Mezec sneaks in

Rob Byrne

BBC News Online

Deputy Tracey Vallois has been backed by more Jersey voters than any other candidates, in a close senatorial race.

Her 15,518 votes, at just over 10%, saw her beat Home Affairs Minister Deputy Kristina Moore, in second place with 15,292 votes, to top the island-wide poll.

Reform Jersey's Chairman Deputy Sam Mezec looked to be out of the senatorial race until the final count in St Helier, which he topped with 3,118 votes.

It means Senator-elect Mezec will be the party's first island-wide candidate.

Elsewhere, Deputy John Le Fondre, Senator Lyndon Farnham, Chief Minister Ian Gorst, Constable Steve Pallett and Senator Sarah Ferguson were also elected.

I will have to step down from my former role. That I will miss without any doubt at all. I think we've got to make sure that we've got people coming through that will take over. With the work I've done with the honorary police with the work i'm doing with the emergency board and everything else I would very much like to look towards the home affairs set up."

The parish is experiencing its longest count in living memory.. .and it's the accountants who are getting the blame.

Apparently the crack team of three are being "thorough".
