Upcoming by-election cancelled

Posted Tue 17th June 2008 at 17:50

Nobody has come forward to contest Alderney's upcoming by-election.

States members recently agreed an election would be held on 28 June following the resignation of Richard Cox.

However, the election has now been cancelled after no one in the island decided to stand. Hustings scheduled for Monday (23 June) have also been scrapped.

Chief executive David Jeremiah said: "This is the second time in a year no one has come forward to contest a by-election.

"It's disappointing but people must bear in mind there are only around 1,300 people eligible to stand and that is not a large amount."

The States is expected to debate the issue at its monthly meeting on Wednesday June 18th.
