Tomorrow evening, Thursday 22 July, Jersey’s first live online hustings will take place ahead of next week’s by-election the role of Connétable of St Clement.
Following five-minute opening speeches by the two candidates, Parishioners are invited to put their questions to the candidates, including a dedicated time – from 8pm – for those aged under 21 to put their questions to the candidates. If time allows, Islanders who do not live in St Clement will be invited to ask questions.
Questions to the candidates can either be submitted:
- In advance – by emailing [email protected] or calling St Clement’s Parish Hall on 01534 854724 between 9am and 5pm tomorrow.
- During the meeting – by emailing [email protected] or by posting in the ‘chat’ function of the Zoom meeting.
When submitting questions, Parishioners are asked to include their full name and the area of the Parish they live in (e.g. Pontac). Those under 21 years of age should also state this in order for their question to be prioritised in the dedicated time slot. Parishioners are also asked to state whether they would like to ask their question via the video link or to have their question read out by the Meeting Chairman: Susan Pearmain, Senior Procureur du Bien Public.
