States to live-stream public meeting on referendum

Share this page

Wednesday 14 June 2017

The States of Guernsey will be live-streaming tomorrow night's public meeting regarding the planned referendum on Guernsey's voting system.

The States' Assembly & Constitution Committee is holding the meeting to explain its proposals for the referendum.

Anyone unable to attend the meeting, in the Harry Bound room at Les Cotils at 7pm tomorrow, will be able to watch live by visiting the States of Guernsey Facebook page

Those tuning in will also be able to leave questions about the referendum in the comment section of the feed. Some of these will be relayed to Deputy Matt Fallaize, President of the States' Assembly & Constitution Committee, by a member of staff monitoring the live-stream while at the public meeting.

The States' Assembly & Constitution Committee is recommending that the electorate should be asked to decide between five options, as set out in its propositions and policy letter. 

The States will debate the proposals - entitled "Referendum on Guernsey's voting system" - at the 21st June States meeting. The propositions and policy letter contain the Committee's proposals that a referendum be held to enable the people of Guernsey to determine their future electoral system. 

As the referendum would offer the electorate a range of options, the Committee is proposing it is held using preferential and transferable voting (known as the Alternative Vote or Instant Run-Off) to determine which of the options is the most favoured and produce a clear result. 

States Members will be asked to agree in advance that if there is a reasonable turnout at the referendum they will bind themselves to accept the result and carry into effect the will of the people. 

The Committee proposes that the referendum should be held in summer 2018. These proposals fulfil the Resolutions of the States made on the 19th February, 2016.
