Have your say on new constituency names

 

The Manx public is being asked to suggest names for the Island's new House of Keys constituencies.

 

Twelve two-seat constituencies are to be created after Tywnald accepted the recommendations of the independent Boundary Review Committee in June.

 

The new system will bring an end to the current mix of one, two and three-seat constituencies and means each MHK will represent roughly the same number of voters.

 

But the names of the new Keys seats are still to be agreed.

 

The committee gave them working titles such as north, south, west, east and Onchan Urban.

 

But if you prefer the name 'Ayre and Michael' to 'North' now's the time to speak up!

You can submit comments by email to Ann.Craine @cso.gov.im or write to Mrs Craine at the Chief Secretary's Office, Government Office, Bucks Road, Douglas, by 7 October.
