Chief Minister Le Fondré Ousted

Chief Minister John Le Fondré has lost his seat in Jersey's States, along with Home Affairs Minister Gregory Guida.

It's the first time an incumbent leader has lost in an election.

Independent candidate Kirsten Morel topped the poll with 2688 votes.

Newcomers Hilary Jeune, Elaine Millar and Andy Howell, also independents, took the other three seats in the constituency.

The declaration brought more disappointment for the Jersey Alliance party, with Deputy Hugh Raymond also losing his seat in the Assembly.

The assistant minister with responsibility for sport has recently undergone heart surgery in the UK and has not been on the campaign trail in recent weeks.

The full results were:

Gregory Guida (Jersey Alliance) - 1,166

Andy Howell (Independent) - 1,722

Hilary Jeune (Independent) - 2,601

John Le Fondré (Alliance) - 997

Elaine Millar (Independent) - 2241

Kirsten Morel (Independent) - 2688

Hugh Raymond (Alliance) - 421

Mary Venturini (Independent) - 925
