Moore's Ministers Approved

The new Chief Minister has got the team she wanted.

All 11 of Deputy Kristina Moore's Council of Ministers picks were successful in the States Assembly.

There was only one challenge, with Deputy Andy Howell contesting the role of Health Minister. However Deputy Moore's choice, Deputy Karen Wilson, was chosen by the assembly.

The new Council of Ministers is:

  • Treasury Minister: Deputy Ian Gorst
  • Children and Education Minister: Deputy Inna Gardiner
  • Economic Development Minister: Deputy Kirsten Morel
  • Environment Minister: Deputy Jonathan Renouf
  • External Relations Minister: Deputy Philip Ozouf
  • Health Minister: Deputy Karen Wilson
  • Home Affairs Minister: Deputy Helen Miles
  • Housing Minister: Deputy David Warr
  • Infrastructure Minister: Deputy Tom Binet
  • International Development Minister: Deputy Carolyn Labey
  • Social Security Minister: Deputy Elaine Millar

Deputy Labey is the only Minister to retain her role after being part of the previous government.

Deputy Ian Gorst was External Relations Minister in the previous government and made the move over to Treasury after serving as Assistant to Deputy Susie Pinel in the last term.

Deputy Lyndon Farnham served as Deputy Chief Minister and was External Relations Minister from 2014. He decided not to challenge.

The only other member of the last government to be reelected, Kevin Lewis, decided to move into the role of Constable and didn't make a formal move to continue as Infrastructure Minister.

Reform Jersey decided not to challenge for any of the Ministerial positions.

Deputy Rob Ward, who narrowly missed out on becoming Children and Education Minister in the last assembly, published a statement online to explain his decision not to challenge for the role again.

The Assembly will also appoint the chairs of Scrutiny panels and committees.
