Sir Philip In, But Sir Mark Loses

JLC leader Sir Philip Bailhache is making a political comeback, but Jersey Alliance leader Sir Mark Boleat has failed to get elected.

Former Bailiff and Ex-Senator Sir Philip Bailhache is returning to the States.

The Jersey Liberal Conservatives party leader took third place in St Clement with 1,251 votes.

Independents Alex Curtis (1,485) - part of the Better Way grouping, and Barbara Ward (1,415) finished ahead of him while Karen Wilson (979) took the final seat, continuing the trend of the night for newcomers without party affiliations to do well at the ballot box.

Assistant Treasury Minister and current Deputy Lindsay Ash, who is also a Jersey Alliance member - has lost his seat in the States Assembly.

Mark Boleat (Alliance) - 721
