3. Criminal Complaint = Perverting The Course Of Justice
4.a Will let you know shortly, but hope its prison :)
Jersey's next Chief Minister, Senator Ian Gorst, has released his nominations for his Council of Ministers.
His nine nominations include Senator Ian Le Marquand as Treasury Minister - meaning that Senator Philip Ozouf would be out of Ministerial Office.
Sir Philip Bailhache has been given one of two Assistant Chief Minister posts - which do not need to be voted on - with responsibility for foreign affairs, while Paul Routier will stay in the other.
These two positions do not need to be voted for by the States, while the rest of the Council of Ministers will go to a vote tomorrow.
He wants Alan Maclean to stay on in Economic Development and Anne Pryke in Health, and to bring in newly-elected Senators Lyndon Farnham to Home Affairs and Francis Le Gresley in his old job as Social Security Minister.
Chief Minister designate Senator Gorst has said that he wants to offer Sir Philip Bailhache - who he went up against for the Chief Minister job - a Ministerial role. Although not in his Council of Ministers proposed line-up, it is believed he will offer Sir Philip the position of one of his two Assistant Chief Ministers.
The nine politicians Senator Gorst wants are listed in the table above - including four who would stay in their roles - but States Members can still put themselves forward for positions as long as they have two backers when they vote tomorrow.

How will the Council be chosen?
It is only after his Council of Ministers is voted in, that Senator Gorst will officially become Chief Minister and take over from the outgoing Terry Le Sueur.
Senator Gorst will be invited by the Presiding Officer to make each of his nominations in turn. Following each nomination the Presiding Officer will then invite States Members to nominate alternative candidates for appointment to the Ministerial Office concerned. If there are no alternative nominations the Member nominated by the Chief Minister designate will be selected for appointment.
If more than one Member is nominated, the Presiding Officer will invite each candidate to speak for up to 10 minutes, followed by a 20 minute question period.
After the candidates have spoken and been questioned, a secret ballot or ballots will be held and once a candidate has obtained a majority of votes, he or she will be appointed to the relevant Ministerial Office.
