Landslide victory for new president

Post by GD on Sun 12 Jun 2011, 1:13 am

STUART Trought is Alderney’s new States President after winning today’s by-election by a landslide.

He polled 487 votes, ahead of Bill Simpson (239) and Paul Arditti (105), and will be sworn in at this month’s States meeting. Turnout was high for a Presidential poll at 65% after 845 people voted. There were 13 spoilt papers.

Mr Trought replaces Sir Norman Browse, who has led Alderney’s government since 2002. Sir Norman triggered the poll after deciding to stand down before he turns 80. (from GEP)
