The Guernsey Reform Group says it will shut down

The Guernsey Reform Group has said it will shut down its operations in the wake of the island's general election.

The lobby group had been seeking a reform of the States and had encouraged members of the public to send in their ideas for a better government.

Roger Dadd, a member of the group, said after two years of lobbying the island's government, its job was done.

However, he said that depending on the decisions made by the new assembly, the group could make a return in two years.

The group had been operating online and Mr Dadd estimated it had interacted with several hundred islanders.

It was formed at the half-way point of the current States assembly's term in 2010.

The 2012 general election saw 45 seats in the States of Guernsey contested by 78 candidates.

Twelve sitting deputies failed to gain re-election.
