New States of Jersey

 

Saturday 10th. December 2005 the beginning of a new dawn in Jersey!

After 481 years, (Since 1524 during the Reign of King Henry VIII) the Islands committee system of government has finally come to an end. In December 2000 a study of the machinery of our government was carried out by Sir Cecil Clothier and others, and he recommended a total reform, this ministerial system is the result. Jersey has had it's own autonomy since 1204 thanks to King John and the Islanders of the day who chose to remain loyal to the Crown rather than stay with France.

The changes the public are expecting may not happen for a while. Already the following Statesmen have the same position as before the Ministerial system, Senator Terry Le Sueur, Senator Stuart Syvret, Senator Paul Routier, Senator Terry Le Main, Senator Mike Vibert, Senator Wendy Kinnard. unless of course Senator Frank Walker cracks the whip.

 

The changes

  • Deputy Guy De Faye: 09/12/2005 the minister for transport has announced that he wants to change the Taxi/Cab system. He wants one type of taxis and one number for the public to call. (something that under the old committee system no one has managed to do in the last 25 years!) Read on

  • No changes yet 07/09/2007

The Elections take place on 26/11/2008. No changes so far.

2008 elections, Guy De Faye is not re-elected.

  • New at the elms is Connétable Michael Jackson assisted by Deputy Kevin Lewis
