A milestone to be proud of

150 years of democracy to be celebrated

One hundred and fifty years of democracy in the Isle of Man is to be marked today (Tuesday).

 

A special afternoon sitting of the House of Keys will be held in the old House of Keys in Castletown.

 

The introduction of public elections in 1867 was considered a major step in political democracy becoming a reality.

 

Speaker of the House Juan Watterson says the milestone is something which should be celebrated.
