One Guernsey parish election still to be decided

One of Guernsey's parish official elections will be decided by a secret ballot.

The douzeniers' election in St Peter Port has been deferred until 16 November, when voting will take place.

The other three contested elections were decided by a show of hands at parish meetings in Castel and St Saviour on Wednesday.

The majority of parish elections were uncontested with those successful starting their terms in the New Year.

Election results

St Saviour douzeniers: Elizabeth Pirouet-Douglas 54 votes, Jeffrey Brache 40 votes and Mark de Garis 39 votes.

Edward Higgins was unsuccessful having polled 13 votes.

In the Castel Beverley Holliday was elected to the douzaine with 45 votes along with John Ashby and David Chester with 42 each. Tony Luscombe failed to get in with 24 votes.

Castel parishioners also chose Beverley Holliday, along with Christopher Le Page, as their representatives on Les Beaucamps High School Committee.
