Watch #Jsy2018: 8 candidates for 3 places in St. Helier No 1


Parishioners in St Helier will soon to be going to the polls to elect deputies in each of the parish’s three districts.

In St. Helier No 1 – the most southerly section of the parish - there are eight candidates going for just three places.

All three of the district’s current politicians – Judy Martin, Russell Labey, and Scott Wickenden – are seeking re-election.

Challenging them are three Reform party candidates – John McNichol, Kelly Langdon, and Yann Mash – and two independents – Nick Le Cornu and Jason Lagadu.

There's already been a hustings held, but it's possible there could be two others.

One of those has already been fixed, and will take place at the Town Hall on Wednesday 2 May at 19:00.

No matter what district they live in, all St. Helier parishioners in St. Helier – like parishioners across the island – will also have the opportunity to choose up to eight senators from a list of 17 candidates. But where parishoners vote depends on the district in which they live. Parishioners living in No 1 vote at the Town Hall, the same place where they go to vote for their deputies.

Election day is Wednesday 16 May.

Bailiwick Express would like to thank the students of Highlands College Media Department who helped film some of these election videos.

Tomorrow: St Saviour No 2.
