Vote of Censure
Senator Sam Mézec proposed a Vote of Censure. A Vote of Censure is a proposition which asks the States Assembly to censure any person or body regarding a particular issue. If the Assembly votes 'for', it is an expression of strong disapproval in this person or body. However, no action is procedurally required from the censured person or body.
Senator Mézec asked the States Assembly to censure the Council of Ministers for their failure to implement the decision made by the States Assembly to adopt 'Residential Properties in the Waterfront Development', as amended. This is the first Vote of Censure for this term of Government.
The States Assembly will resume the Vote of Censure debate tomorrow, Wednesday 15 September, at 9:30am.
