Cyril and Caz top the poll in Ascension election

Ascension Island has seven new councillors after a Hallowe’en election.

Experienced island politicians Cyril Leo and Caz Yon earned the highest number of votes in the 31 October 2013 poll, with 159 and 139 votes respectively.

Also elected were Samantha Jean Arms-Lawrence, Toni Bendall, Keturah Viola George, Nicholas Ivan John, and Larry James Poultney.

William Alexander Minto and Jane Elizabeth Harris Cranfield both secured a strong tally of votes – but not quite enough to win one of the seven council seats.
