I would like to know what Codes of Conduct there are, if any, when there is a situation of a Jersey Politician making a complete fool of themselves online thereby putting the States of Jersey into disrepute?


The Code of Conduct for elected members of the States appears as Schedule 3 to the Standing Orders of the States of Jersey, available at the following link:

Standing Orders of the States of Jersey

Paragraph 1 of the Code of Conduct states that “all elected members are required, in accordance with standing orders, to comply with this code.”

In addition to the Code of Conduct for Elected Members, all Ministers and Assistant Ministers must also comply with the Codes of Conduct and Practice for Ministers and Assistant Ministers, available at the following link:

Codes of conduct and practice for Ministers and Assistant Ministers

This response has been issued on behalf of the States Greffe. The States Greffe is responsible for the information held by (and on behalf of) both itself and the States Assembly.  Neither the States Assembly nor the States Greffe form part of the Government of Jersey and the Government was not involved either in the examination and retrieval of any information required for this response, nor in the drafting of the response itself
