WHILE some deputies-elect celebrated the triumphant close of their campaigns others began a new election charge as the spotlight moved to the role of chief minister.
Several candidates have already expressed an interest in the top job. Who gets it will be decided by the States on 1 May.
And behind the scenes some of those in the running were yesterday looking to secure support with the promise of their backing for ministerial positions should they be elected.
Speaking after Wednesday’s result Lyndon Trott said he was ready to stand for a second term as ‘head of the States’.
But also expected to throw their hats into the ring are Jonathan Le Tocq and Mark Dorey. And it’s rumoured that Hunter Adam and Mary Lowe may put themselves forward too.
