Candidate stoic over electoral blunder

A candidate who withdrew from the upcoming Douglas East by-election says he fully accepts an apology from the General Registry.

John Hanson was hoping to contest the seat left vacant by Brenda Cannell.

But he was sent an old electoral list in the nomination process by error - meaning he failed to get enough valid signatures before the deadline.

Mr Hanson says he's not angry at the blunder - and thinks restarting the whole process would prove too costly for the taxpayer.
