Block Vote in Tynwald

To aid understanding of Tynwald voting procedures PAG has updated its acclaimed 'Block Vote' diagram.

To be successful, the proposer of a motion, must get a majority of votes in both Keys and Council - generally
13 and 5 votes respectively.

In the Keys, bolstered by collective responsibility a Minister can be guaranteed 9 votes plus the votes of his/her
departmental members e.g The DfE Minister has 12 votes in the bag before any vote is taken!

We are pleased to say that, compared with our previous Block Vote from 2012, the current version shows that this voting system
is marginally less predictable. There are fewer MLCs who have a departmental role.
