Speaking at a Chamber of Commerce lunch, St Martin Deputy Steve Luce said: 'Will I be offering myself for re-election next year? Provided there's no major personal issues, yes. I'm hugely proud to represent my parish in the States Assembly.

'If re-elected will I seek a ministerial role? Absolutely yes. And that role would be the job I currently do.'

The Deputy, who was elected unopposed in 2014, added that he did not want to stand for election as a Senator on an Island-wide mandate, claiming that he represents the ‘best parish in the Island’.

The next general election is due to be held in May.
