Poll-topper Perrot eyes top Commerce & Employment job
Friday 20th April 2012, 8:30AM BST.
A PICTURE of the new States began to form yesterday as successful candidates set their sights for ministerial positions.
West poll-topper Roger Perrot, pictured, confirmed it was his intention to stand for Commerce and Employment minister.
Newcomer Gavin St Pier said he was looking to fill the boots of Charles Parkinson as Treasury and Resources minister. Deputy Parkinson’s retirement had been a factor in his decision to become a deputy.
The man who took over from Carol Steere as Education minister, Robert Sillars, also began making his case to hold on to the portfolio.
And former Environment minister David De Lisle is hoping to reclaim the position after a successful election campaign and the retirement of Peter Sirrett.
