Trott names council preferences

Lyndon Trott
Mr Trott will speak to his preferred candidates over the weekend

Guernsey's new Chief Minister has named his preferred Policy Council.

It is the first time candidates have been announced before the meeting where their positions are decided.

Deputy Lyndon Trott was voted into the States' most senior job on Thursday. Charles Parkinson is earmarked for his former job at Treasury and Resources.

Mark Dorey is lined up for Social Security while Dave Jones in Housing and Geoff Mahy at the Home department are recommended to stay in their jobs.

Bernard Flouquet, who finished runner-up for Chief Minister is nominated for the Public Services post, while Peter Sirrett is set to switch from Culture and Leisure to Environment with his old role going to Leon Gallienne.

Hunter Adam is lined up for Health, Carol Steere for Education and Jack Honeybill for Commerce and Employment.

But deputies can still nominate each other to stand against Lyndon Trott's selection at the States meeting on Tuesday, which will determine the make-up of the top bench of the house.
