A journey into uncharted territory

union triskSummary of Implications Leave vote to IoM extracted from CoMin's UK referendum on EU membership Implications for the Isle of Man Second Interim Report (April 2016)

Constitutional and legal effects Protocol 3 will fall away. The Protocol is attached to the UK’s Accession Treaty – and is not part of the EU Treaty itself. Article 50 of the Treaty sets out how a Member State can leave the EU, and allows for a two-year window within which the departing Member has to negotiate its ‘withdrawal agreement’ (although this can be extended).

It is anticipated that the UK’s ‘withdrawal agreement’ would set out its new relationship with the EU, but the UK Government has stated that this could take up to ten years to resolve. The Isle of Man’s underlying relationship with the Crown and the UK would not change.

Who's up for it?

E-mail Print PDF

Who's up for it?ElectionsWith the announcement that 3 existing MHKs will not be standing in the IOM General Election a picture is beginning to emerge about the status of serving politicians.

  • Not standing - Karran, SHIMMIN, Hall
  • Will they stand? - BELL, Rodan, Singer, TEARE
  • Likely to Stand - QUAYLE, Cannan, Boot, Harmer, RONAN, Quirk, Joughin, Peake, Houghton, Cregeen, Malarkey, WATTERSON, SKELLY, GAWNE
  • Already Declared - Robertshaw, Beecroft, Thomas

On 22nd September candidates will be contesting 2 seats in each of 12 constituencies. With Hall and, especially, Karran, not standing the Onchan contest will be wide open.

Rushen was the other constituency to have 3 representatives. Now there's only 2 places to fight for there which one of the 3 Ministers will be deposed? Or will Castletown get a defector?

Other existing single seat constituencies to be affected by the changes are Peel, Glen Faba, Malew & Santon, The Ayres, Garff, Michael and Middle.

Once elected the new intake of MHKs will, alongside their LegCo colleagues, have to elect a Chief Minister. You as a voter will not have any say as to whom that might be. Having placed your 2 crosses on the ballot paper you relinquish any power you have until 2021. 

The current President of Tynwald Clare Christian ends her 5 year term of office in July 2016. An election for President will have to take place. Again the decision is in the hands of all Tynwald Members. Should Mrs Christian decide to retire it is highly likely that Steve Rodan will be the leading candidate to take over. That would create an opportunity for the voters of Garff to elect 2 new Members. It has also been suggested that John Shimmin could also be nominated for President.

INDEPENDENT REVIEW: to examine the functioning of the Branches of Tynwald and consider options for reform

E-mail Print PDF

The review was approved by Tynwald in June 2015 and supposed to have been published in April 2016. It was announced (01.03.16) that Lord Lisvane is to conduct it during March and May and his report presented in July.

The terms of reference are to:
  • Examine the functions of the Branches of Tynwald
  • Determine the efficacy of the functions of the branches of Tynwald
  • Determine the scrutiny structure required by the parliament. 
  • Recommend options for reform where applicable.

Under the Inquiries (Evidence) Act 2003, the reviewer can ask people to present their thoughts at an Inquiry by written submission to the reviewer, it does not preclude the reviewer from meeting with interested parties to discuss their views but does require the reviewer to allow submission of views to be in public and open to all in a formal inquiry setting.

So if you have got any comments or suggestions do let Lord Lisvane know!
