Lawrie Hooper elected as Liberal Vannin Party Leader

At the Annual General Meeting of the Liberal Vannin Party on the 13th August 2020 and following the early resignation from the House of Keys of our long-standing Party Leader Kate Costain, the Liberal Vannin Party unanimously elected Lawrie Hooper MHK (Ramsey) to
take up the mantle.

Party Chairman Michael Josem, who is running in the Douglas South by-election in a bid to continue Kate’s good work, said:

“Lawrie Hooper is the best person to lead Liberal Vannin into the next election, and I am sure he will do an outstanding job. He has an unwavering commitment to the people of the Isle of Man, and I am hopeful to join and support him in Tynwald to be a strong voice for the people of Mann.”

Stepping down from the role Kate Costain said:

“Serving as Leader of the LibVan Party has been a privilege, being a part of this party strengthened my ability to support and represent my constituents. I am proud of what I achieved during my time in office and I know that Lawrie is very well placed to carry on fighting for the people of the Island”

Lawrie Hooper MHK said:

“Kate will be a hard act to follow but I’m grateful to be given this opportunity and want to thank Kate for her service. With just under a year left in this term of office the Party will continue to focus on holding government to its promises and make sure they don’t take their foot off the pedal. Now, perhaps more than ever, we need a government of action, a government that really delivers for the Isle of Man.”

Kate will continue to serve on the Party’s Executive Committee
