New election hustings approach sought

All public meetings ahead of Manx general elections should in future be organised by the Cabinet Office.

That verdict from a Tynwald committee set up tp review the organisation of last September's Island-wide poll.

The committee's 15 recommendations for change were presented to members when the Court sat yesterday (25 April`).
They cover a wide range of topics - from voter registration and a new rule book for candidates, to the counting of votes.

Among updates the committee wants to see in place by 2020, a centralised system for calling and publicising hustings meetings.

Chairman David Cretney MLC saya they are an important part of democracy - and should not be left to parishes and local authorities to organise.
