Two candidates were nominated for the post at a parish assembly last night attended by 60 people.
Sitting Constable Derek Gray and parishioner John Pirouet will now canvas the parish in the lead up to the election on Wednesday 15 December.
Proposing Mr Gray for another term, Senator Len Norman said he was ‘a caring man, a decent man and an honest man as well as a damn clever man’.
Mr Pirouet was nominated by Deputy Terry Le Main whose speech was read by seconder David Sewell, because the Deputy was out of the Island.
Mr Sewell said: ‘John now wants to give back all he can to the parish of his birth and ancestry.
He is, and always has been, passionate about his parish, so what better way than to stand for the office of Constable.
