Inna Gardiner Wins By-Election 

Inna Gardiner has been elected Deputy of St Helier 3 and 4 district.

She won a by-election with 391 votes, ahead of Reform's Lynsey Feltham who polled 324.  

Turnout was 18.65%.

The trained social worker and management consultant narrowly missed out on the seat in last year's General Election.

The by-election was triggered following the death of popular politician Richard Rondel last November.

Deputy-elect Gardiner will be sworn into office tomorrow and take a seat in the States Chamber for the first time on 12th March.

She becomes the 14th woman in the current Assembly, a record number of female representatives in Jersey's government.

She is the 45th woman to ever be elected to the States.

Ahier, Francesca – 60
