Following an amendment to the Public Elections (Jersey) Law 2002 in January 2017, CPA UK were invited by the Chief Minister and Chair of the Privileges and Procedures Committee to observe the Jersey 2018 elections against international standards, commitments and obligations as well as domestic laws.

  • candidate nomination
  • polling (including postal and pre-polling)
  • counting and tabulation
  • post-election complaints or appeals
     

A preliminary report will be published within two days following the election to outline the initial findings. A closing report will be published within two months after the election making recommendations for electoral reform.
 

Chief Executive of CPA UK, Jon Davies said:

“This will be the first election in which Jersey or indeed any of the Crown Dependencies has invited an international election observation team. We are honoured to be a part of this momentous opportunity. Election observations are vital elements of CPA UK’s commitment to enhance openness and transparency in parliamentary democracy across the Commonwealth.
