Former CM opposes publicly elected post

'A dangerous decision' warns Brown

A former chief minister has warned against making it a publicly elected post.

Tony Brown held the position between 2006 and 2011.

With Allan Bell retiring from politics, there's been much speculation about how the Island's next chief minister should be chosen.

Mr Brown feels giving one man such a mandate from the electorate would be a step in the wrong direction.
