Shimmins nominated for LegCo

Election will take place in November

Former Middle MHK Bill Shimmins has been nominated for election to the Legislative Council.

He's been put forward for the position of MLC by Garff MHK Daphne Caine.

Two seats are vacant following the election of Kate Lord-Brennan and Jane Poole-Wilson to the House of Keys.

Nominations have to be in by 4 November and the election will take place on 23 November.

If there are only two candidates nominated it will lead to an uncontested election and the candidates won't need to compete for the positions.
