People’s Deputy in the States of Deliberation

38 vacancies


Are you are passionate about Guernsey and its future?

Guernsey’s next general election will be the first time that Islanders will be vote for up to 38 Deputies, rather than just for the 6 or 7 in their district.

The States decides what kind of education our children receive, when we need a new hospital wing, how much we pay in tax, where we build new houses, who can vote, who you can marry…

Could you propose, make and implement important decisions on behalf of your fellow Islanders?


Skills required

The job of Deputy is what you make it.  There is no one way to do it.

Here are the thoughts of one current Deputy:

Deputy Michelle Le Clerc: “I think one of the really important skills is the ability to be able to read and digest the papers that you get at committee level (and they can get quite technical), and the Billet. You don’t need to be an accountant but you need to be able to understand some budgets and be able to look at the accounts”.
