Jersey's Bailiff says holding the general election in May should be rethought.
Sir William Bailhache says that the month was changed from Autumn to Spring to encourage more people to vote, yet there has been no significant increase.
The election in 2018 saw a 32% turnout.
The Bailiff went on to say that for States Members to go into purdah for six weeks prior to the elections means that a number of opportunities for States Meetings are lost.
The Bailiff says that the combination of electing a new government and the summer break means that very little is done by the Assembly over the four months after the general election.
