Department ministers are elected
The Ministers of Guernsey's 10 new States departments have now been elected to the Policy Council in the new-look House.

At the start of Tuesday's sitting, Deputy Lyndon Trott won the post of Minister of the Treasury and Resources Department.

Martin Ozanne is the new education minister and Stuart Falla heads commerce and employment.

All three were proposed by the Chief Minister Laurie Morgan.

Deputy Falla was elected unopposed, as were Deputy Dave Jones as Minister of Housing, Deputy Bernard Flouquet to head the Environment Department, and Deputy Peter Roffey as Minister of Health and Social Services.

Deputy Mike Torode becomes the new Minister of the Home Department.

He polled 26 votes, although the Chief Minister's choice was Deputy Hunter Adam, and Deputy Jonathan Le Tocq was also nominated.

Deputy Torode told the House his experience made him the "right man for the job".
