Half of Guernsey’s politicians would like to see a yes or no question for the island’s referendum on island wide voting.
The States Assembly and Constitution Committee, which is set to bring a policy letter on an island wide voting referendum in the next few weeks, is set to give voters a choice of five options.
ITV News contacted all of Guernsey’s 38 deputies to ask whether they supported the idea of a referendum, whether they would like to see a yes or no question and whether the referendum’s result should be binding.
But, there is a mixed view on whether a turnout threshold is needed, with some politicians believing there shouldn't be one, and others liking the idea of a turnout threshold of 33%.
Deputy Jan Kuttelwascher is a long-time supporter of islandwide voting and believes the question should be binary.
