Press Release 25 April 2022

Coalition - Progress Party and Jersey Liberal DemocratsThe Progress Party Leader Senator Steve Pallett and Jersey Liberal Conservatives Leader Sir Philip Bailhache are pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached between their respective parties to work together and to coordinate their campaigns in the run up to the elections on 22nd June 2022. Both parties agree that it is in the interests of voters that they should place a single Manifesto before the public.

Their Coalition will mean that a vote for a TPP candidate can be regarded as a vote for the Jersey Liberal Conservatives and a vote for a Jersey Liberal Conservatives candidate can be regarded as a vote for the TPP. It has been agreed that, if he is elected to the States, Sir Philip will be the Coalition’s candidate for Chief Minister.

 

Sir Philip said:

“This is the first time in Jersey politics that two parties have combined in coalition to produce a joint manifesto behind which all the candidates for the two parties will align when standing for election in June. We think that people should know what they are voting for, and we believe that putting forward a strong programme for coalition government in a transparent manner is very much in the public interest.”

Senator Pallett said:

“Change is desperately needed. We are working together to combine our best ideas to produce an exciting and progressive programme for government”.
