Parishioners say no to politiciansAround 100 people attended a meeting which discussed whether or not politicians should be involved with the electoral reform group
St Helier parishioners have voted strongly against politicians being involved with the group which will investigate electoral reform in Jersey.
At the moment it is being suggested that former Bailiff, now Senator Sir Philip Bailhache, should head the investigation.
On Wednesday evening, St Helier parishioner Nick Le Cornu called an extraordinary public meeting at the Town Hall. He is supporting an amendment by Deputy Roy Le Herissier who wants a lay group to probe the issue and make recommendations.
Parishioners voted 53 in favour of politicians being banned from the electoral reform panel, and with three against.
