Le Marquand to stand for Chief Minister

Post by GD on Wed 27 Jul 2011, 7:30 pm

HOME Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand has announced his intention to stand for Chief Minister in the autumn.

Senator Le Marquand has been in the States since 2008 and believes he is now ready for the ‘tough challenge’ of leading the Island’s government following the retirement of Chief Minister Terry Le Sueur.

The former Magistrate is the first Member to publicly confirm that he will be putting himself forward for the job when a new House is decided in November and says that, if elected by the rest of the Assembly, it will be the biggest challenge he has ever faced.

His decision confirms long-running speculation that he would declare his interest in the Island’s top political job, something Treasury Minister Philip Ozouf is also widely expected to do soon.

Both Senators are halfway through their six-year terms and do not have to face the electorate this year.(from JEP)

Make a good Chief Minister?

......THE BOSS......
