Concerns about female representation in States line-up

Concerns have been raised about the lack of female representation in the new Alderney government.

Following the election this weekend, Ms Paris has raised concerned about the levels of female representation on the island.

Norma Paris, who was elected to the Alderney States in 2014, is the only female States member.

All four newcomers elected to Alderney's government over the weekend are male.

There is now a 9:1 ratio of men to women in the government.

Speaking exclusively to ITV News, Norma Paris said:

Only 10% of States members are female. That puts us level with Botswana and Korea.

We're also way behind Afghanistan and Pakistan, so we have a bit to do I think.

The government insist that they will be representative for Alderney, offering a different kind of politics to what the island is used to.
