"Trevor Pitman Puts An End To States Secret Voting"

THE vote for Jersey’s next Chief Minister will take place in the open after politicians narrowly agreed to end the secret ballot.

States Members ratified their in-principle September decision to open up the vote, so that Islanders will know how they all vote in a fortnight.
They voted 23 to 18 to change the election rules, after Deputy Trevor Pitman led the proposals by the Privileges and Procedures Committee to ratify the September decision on his own backbencher proposal.
The Deputy said that he respected the ‘firmly and genuinely held views’ on the subject, but urged Members to stick with the move to end the secrecy over the vote.

    Take note of the "Sh******es" who would prefer that this place remained swathed in secrecy, the way they prefer it, they are named in JEP 4,NOV.
