Are you thinking of standing for a place on Legislative Council?

There will be four vacancies in February with MHKs electing who serves for the next five years.

David Cretney, Tim Crookall, Bill Henderson and Kerry Sharpe come to the end of their term and all have the chance to stand again against other candidates that come forward.

Speaker of the House of Keys Juan Watterson has some advice on the type of person who will be suited to the role:

Nominations will open on Wednesday 29 January for one month and the election will be held on Thursday 12 March.
