Assistant Ministers Appointed

The new Chief Minister has announced who will serve as Assistant Ministers in her new government.

Deputy Kristina Moore's assistants are the Constable of St John, Andy Jehan, and 'Better Way' colleague Deputy Alex Curtis.

All Assistant Ministers are independents, apart from Jersey Liberal Conservatives member Malcolm Ferey, who'll help Elaine Millar in Social Security.

Five States members are Assistant Ministers for more than one portfolio.

The government says that is to be more coordinated and better equipped 'to deliver the cross-cutting change that islanders voted for.'

More appointments could follow.

"This is a strong and diverse team of Assistant Ministers, and I am very pleased they have agreed to serve as key members of the Government.

They add to the talent and different perspectives that we have on the Council of Ministers, and we will work together for the good of all Islanders to meet the challenges we face and to put Jersey back on track.

This will be a government that will strive to be open, visible and accessible and will listen to all members of our community. Assistant Ministers will play a central part in meeting these objectives.

We will now embark on our plan for the first 100 days, our mini-budget to address the cost-of-living crisis, and setting our strategic priorities.

I look forward to continuing to work across the Assembly, and constructively with Scrutiny, as we take this work forward, rebuilding trust and making Jersey a better place to live for everyone." - Deputy Kristina Moore.
