Election recount – no change to result
Friday 20th April 2012, 6:53PM BST.
Recounts of the votes cast in the elections for St Peter Port North and the Vale have made no difference to the results.
Rhoderick Matthews had called for the recount in St Peter Port North after missing out on a seat by just three votes to Lester Queripel, while in the Vale James Symons made the request when he finished 42 votes behind Garry Collins.
The count took place in the Dorey Room at St James this afternoon. Final confirmed St Peter Port North figures showed Matthews polled 936 while Queripel had 938, therefore no change in position.
Final figures for the Vale showed that Deputy-elect Collins had 1,275 (down one vote) while Mr Symons had 1,232 (down 2).
