One of newest MHKs declares for General Election

Claire Christian will contest Douglas South

One of the Island’s newest MHKs has confirmed she will stand for re-election in September.

Claire Christian will contest the Douglas South seat she won by a majority in last August’s by-election.

Announcing her candidacy, Mrs Christian said it would come as no surprise, as she had stated her long term commitment to the constituency during her by-election campaign.

She says she feels she’s ‘hit the ground running’ in the past seven months, representing her constituents and scrutinising government policy and decisions. 

Mrs Christian describes herself as a local business and self-employed people’s champion and currently holds two departmental positions, one in Education and the other in Infrastructure.

Her election pledges include a centralised government amalgamating national priorities and policy and a holistic approach for a world class mental health system.

This year’s General Election will take place on Thursday 23rd September.
