Seventy of the eighty candidates for Election 2016 took part in the GDA Speed Hustings on Wednesday 6th April at Beau Sejour. You can watch what happened in the video above.

There were two sessions, one at 7pm and one at 8.30pm.  At each session, GDA members were seated at one of 18 themed tables.  Candidates spent five minutes at each table before moving on at the sound of a bell.

Here is some of the reaction from potential deputies:

“I just want to say a HUGE thank you for the amazingly brave people who spoke to me at the GDA Hustings tonight. You were an inspiration and deserve to have the same opportunities, equality, resources and accessibility to everything, just like the rest of us.”

“Well organised, very friendly and hugely informative.”

“GDA’s #MakeItReal Speed Hustings was even better than the 2012 version.”
