Most Guernsey parish elections unopposed

Only 10 of the 85 Guernsey parish roles up for election will be contested.

Six douzenier posts and four seats on the St Martin's School Committee are due to be discussed at parish meeting on Wednesday.

And one position, for a constable in the Forest, has yet to receive any nominations.

All other elections - for constables, douzeniers, constables and school committees positions - have the same number of candidates as open seats.

The contested elections, in St Saviour and St Martin, will be decided at the parish meetings or a polling date will be set.

Contested elections

St Martin douzeniers (three seats): Raymond Corbin, Carolyn Marquis, Colin Pickard, Gordon Snell and Philip Soulsby.

St Saviour douzeniers (three seats): Andrew Courtney, Edward Higgins, Jonathan Jorgenson-Lesbirel and Martyn Tanguy.
