The States Assembly – Jersey’s elected parliament is made up of 49 States Members, including:
Deputies elected to represent the interests of their Parishes in the States as well as engaging in wider issues affecting the whole island. Some Parishes with a large population have more than one Deputy and some, for example St. Helier, are divided into multiple districts. Parishes with smaller populations have only one Deputy for the whole Parish.
Constables – also known as Connétables. They have a dual role as both head of the Parish and States Member.
