Sark's Chief Pleas could see number of conseillers slashed

Sark's Chief Pleas will discuss whether to reduce the number of politicians in the island today.

It comes after two consecutive elections saw only one candidate stand, leaving Sark with an unelected government.

They now want to review the number of conseillers needed to make up Chief Pleas, with the exact number yet to be decided.

Chief Pleas say they hope that the number will be made in time for the necessary legislation to be in place for the December 2018 elections.

The Policy and Performance Committee have outlined the following proposition:

That Chief Pleas requests the Law Officers of the Crown to draft the necessary legislation to amend the Reform (Sark) Law, 2008 to enable Chief Pleas to stipulate the number of Conseillers to constitute Chief Pleas, instruction on that number will be made in time for the necessary legislation to be in place for the December 2018 elections.
