States' Assembly and Constitution Committee - P.2017/88

The States are asked to decide whether, after consideration of the attached policy letter, they are of opinion:-

1. To agree to introduce the electoral system which is the most favoured in the referendum on the method of electing People's Deputies to the States of Deliberation provided that the number of persons voting in the referendum is at least 40% of those persons inscribed on the Electoral Roll who are eligible to vote on the day of the referendum; and to agree that, in the event that turnout at the referendum is less than 40%, the States' Assembly & Constitution Committee should within three months of the date of the referendum submit a policy letter to the States setting out any recommendations for reform to the electoral system which it considers necessary, having taken into account the results of the referendum.

OR, only if Proposition 1 shall have been defeated,

2. To agree, irrespective of turnout,  to introduce the electoral system which is the most favoured in the referendum on the method of electing People's Deputies to the States of Deliberation.

OR, only if Propositions 1 & 2 shall have been defeated,

3. That in advance of the referendum the States shall make no commitment to implement the results of the referendum; and to direct the States' Assembly & Constitution Committee to submit a policy letter to the States setting out any recommendations for reform to the electoral system which it considers necessary, having taken into account the results of the referendum. 

The above Propositions have been submitted to Her Majesty's Procureur for advice on any legal or constitutional implications.
