JDA man to stand for Constable in St Brelade

STEVE Pallett, a Jersey Democratic Alliance council member, is to stand for Constable in St Brelade against Deputy Sarah Ferguson.

He has already declared his intention to stand for Deputy in the parish, but the election for Constable will be held on 9 November, 15 days before the elections for Deputy.

The contest will be the first time for many years that a political party has fielded a candidate in an election for Constable, and it will be the first test of the support of the alliance in any single parish.

Mr Pallett said that as current Constable Max de la Haye was retiring, parishioners deserved to have an alternative to the only other declared candidate, Deputy Ferguson.

'I feel that she represents the establishment view within the States and is someone whose views on many past and current issues are the direct opposite of my own,' he said.
