This charter has now been superceded. 

PAG believe that three ‘core principles’ should apply to the system of Government in the Isle of Man from November 2006.

  • OPEN, ACCOUNTABLE GOVERNMENT
  • RIGOROUS CONTROL OF PUBLIC FINANCES; and
  • A FAIRER SOCIETY FOR ALL

Towards this end we RESOLVE that six steps be taken by November 2011 to implement the ‘core principles’:

  1. The people to have the right to elect Members of the Legislative Council: - before this is implemented, no MLC may become a Minister.
  2. The number of Ministries to be reduced.
  3. The number of Departmental members to be reduced.
  4. Those members whose position has been lost to be diverted to backbench positions to provide proper scrutiny and to hold government to account.
  5. An Independent Audit Commission to be set up - as recommended by the Commission of Inquiry into Mount Murray. (proposals now underway)
  6. That Tynwald should introduce legislation to:
  • PASS A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT
  • PASS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST ACT
  • PASS AN ACT TO ESTABLISH AN INDEPENDENT OMBUDSMAN (now underway)
  • BRING INTO FORCE THE HUMAN RIGHTS ACT 2001 (achieved 1st November 2006)
