Third nomination for Legislative Council

Corelli Bentham nominated by Dr Alex Allinson

A third person has been put forward for next month's Legislative Council elections.

Corelli Bentham, former CEO of Construction Isle of Man, and director of Build a Skill, has been nominated by Enterprise Minister Dr Alex Allinson.

She believes her background will 'compliment the current crop of MLCs':

It means the election, due to take place on 23 November, is now contested.

Two seats on the council were left vacant following the election of Kate Lord-Brennan and Jane Poole-Wilson.

Nominations close on 4 November.
