Jersey is divided into 12 parishes. The parishes hold public elections to appoint people to the roles of Procureur du Bien Public and Centenier. These are parish roles and the post-holders are not members of the States Assembly.
Procureur du Bien Public
An election for one Procureur du Bien Public in each Parish is held every 18 months. The next elections will be mid-March 2020. Those elected will take the oath of office late March 2020.
One of the Centeniers is appointed by the Connétable as the Chef de Police for the parish in accordance with the Honorary Police (Jersey) Regulations 2005.
Centeniers are elected at a public election within the parish. Elections for Centeniers are held every 9 months. Each candidate must be proposed and seconded by 10 electors of the parish.
The next elections will be mid-March 2020. Those elected as Centenier will take the oath of office late March 2020.
