The Government of Jersey (Jèrriais: Gouvèrnément d'Jèrri), is the central government of the Bailiwick of Jersey.[2]

The government is led by the Chief Minister, who selects all the remaining ministers. The chief minister and the other ministers belong to the supreme decision-making committee, known as the Council of Ministers. The government ministers all sit in the States Assembly, and are accountable to it.

Local government

Jersey is divided in 12 parishes, which are further divided into vingtaines (or, in St. Ouen, cueillettes), divisions that are historic. Today they are used chiefly for purposes of local administration and electoral constituency. Each parish has their own Assembly.
