Public Hustings for Tynwald’s Legislative Council Candidates

Liberal Vannin, in association with Manx Radio, are to hold a public hustings event for nominated MLC candidates at the Manx Legion Club at 7.30pm on Monday, February 27th.

Nominations close at Noon on the previous Friday, February 24th and all approved candidates are invited to attend and answer questions from the audience.

The event will be chaired by Paul Weatherall, Liberal Vannin Chair, with the public questioning recorded and co-ordinated by Phil Gawne, for Manx Radio.

Paul Weatherall said:

“Liberal Vannin first arranged public hustings in 2020, to provide an opportunity for Manx voters to grill candidates for our Legislative Council. We are looking forward to being able to do this again for the 4 vacancies to be filled next month. Many question the need for MLCs at all, or why they shouldn’t be subject to Island-wide public election, rather than being appointed by our MHKs.

“We are especially pleased to have Phil Gawne from Manx Radio participating in and recording this important event. Come along on Monday, February 27th and ask the MLC candidates why they’re standing.”
