About the consultation

The Electoral Commission will consider the following areas:

  • classes of States member
  • constituencies and mandates
  • number of States members
  • terms of office

We are keen to hear what you think about the constitution of the States Assembly and are specifically interested in your views on:

  • how many States members there should be
  • whether we should we have Senators, Deputies and Connétables
  • what their mandates should be
  • what their constituencies should look like
  • how long there should be between elections

The Commission hopes to finish its work by December 2012, when it will present its recommendations to the Privileges and Procedures Committee.
