Chief Minister Hustings

CM

7:30pm Monday 11th October 2021

Manx Legion Club, Market Hill, Douglas

The event is free and open to all


Every five years the Isle of Man chooses a Chief Minister (CM). Well that is not quite correct, because it's the 24 newly elected MHKs that elect the Chief Minister.

The public had its say in last months general election, with each constituency returning 2 of those 24 MHKs. The public play no part in the election of the Chief Minister.

Two candidates have been nominated to be CM - Dr Allinson MHK and Mr Cannan MHK.

In a live debate the public can hear them explain their policies and their vision for the future of the Isle of Man.

After a brief introduction by each candidate, the audience will be given the opportunity to raise questions with them.


Roger Tomlinson of PAG:

Five years ago we held a similar CM Hustings meeting and it was a huge success.

Being live and not confined to a studio setting, the audience can not only hear fine words but also judge the body language of the candidates.

We hope the the audience will submit them to a rigorous examination. It is not often that the people get such an opportunity.

We are pleased that Paul Moulton has agreed to chair the discussion and questions.
