The island votes…. for change
Wednesday 18th April 2012, 8:20AM BST.
Guernsey has voted for change, with a dozen sitting States members losing their seats on a night that newcomers topped the poll in five of the seven districts.
Among the highest-profile casualties was deputy chief minister Bernard Flouquet and Father of the House Ivan Rihoy.
It was only in the Vale that a sitting member topped the poll, with Matt Fallaize repeating his success of 2008.
And while two women members lost their seats – Janine Le Sauvage and Jenny Tasker – two new women deputies topped the polls in St Peter Port Port and the South-East: Michelle Le Clerc and Heidi Soulsby respectively. There were a total of 19 new members voted in.
