Recounts for the Vale and St Peter Port North
Thursday 19th April 2012, 4:00PM BST.
Two recounts have been called in the wake of yesterday’s election, with candidates in the Vale and St Peter Port North asking for the poll to be looked at again.
The Vale recount was requested by James Symons, pictured, who polled 1,234 votes on Wednesday night.
He finished in eighth position, 42 votes behind successful candidate Garry Collins.
In St Peter Port North, Rhod Matthews was only three votes behind Lester Queripel and so has requested a recount for that district.
Both recounts will take place at 2pm on Friday in the Dorey Room at St James.
Candidates from the respective districts may attend.
The results will be announced by the posting of notices in the Grand Hall of the Royal Court.
- On Wednesday night it was three hours and 18 minutes before the Vale declared its result, with St Peter Port North the last district to declare, having taken five hours and 26 minutes to count the votes.
