THERE could be up to seven new States members taking up ministerial positions next week after the Chief Minister-designate announced her preferred candidates to sit on the Council of Ministers.
Deputy Kristina Moore has also selected four members from the previous government to work in roles beside her. However, those spots are not guaranteed and the States Assembly will vote for the new Council of Ministers on Monday.
If her picks are successful, Deputy Ian Gorst, who previously worked as External Relations Minister, would take over as Treasury Minister. Deputy Philip Ozouf, who is returning to the States after a four year absence, would take over as External Relations Minister.
Deputy Kirsten Morel, who worked as an Assistant Economic Development Minister in the previous term, has been put forward to carry on his work in the role – but as a Minister, rather than assistant.
Deputy Carolyn Labey has been chosen to carry on her work in International Development.
A number of new faces could also take up roles, with Deputy Jonathan Renouf being nominated for Environment Minister and Deputy Elaine Millar for Social Security Minister.
Deputy Moore, who topped the poll in the St Mary, St Ouen and St Peter district at last month’s election, will formally succeed Senator John Le Fondré when her Council of Ministers is appointed next week.

Treasury and Resources Minister: Deputy Ian Gorst
