Hustings will be staged for the forthcoming elections, the President has confirmed.

He spoke after the States agreed dates for the upcoming polls, which will elect a new candidate to replace David Earl, and for the five States Members who have reached the end of their four year term in office.

Polling day for the by-election, for term that will run until 31st December 2022, is Saturday 10th October, with voting as usual in the Island hall from 9.30am-6.30pm.

Nominations will be open during the seven days ending at 4pm on Thursday 24th September and forms will be available from the Island Hall office and online.

The presidential election will take place on Saturday 14th November at the Island Hall and nominations should be received in the seven day run up to Wednesday 14th November.

The ordinary election will be held on 28th November and nominations must be received during the seven day period ending Wednesday 18th November at 4pm.

The plebiscite election, to select two States Members to represent Alderney in the States of Deliberation in Guernsey, will be held on Saturday 12th December at the Island Hall and the nomination period will end on Wednesday, 2nd December 2020.

Graham McKinley asked if hustings would be held for candidates and Mr Tate said he was already making preliminary arrangements for them at dates to be finalised.
