Objectives

  1. To promote awareness and understanding of politics and citizenship
  2. To encourage members of the public to participate actively in politics by taking part in discussions, making their views known, voting, standing for office and holding public office.
  3. To encourage an increase in the percentage turnout of the electorate, by raising awareness of the importance to the electorate of exercising their democratic right to vote - a consequence of which will be that they can help to shape and secure the future of the Isle of Man.
  4. To bring to the attention of Tynwald Members, the Government of the Isle of Man, or any other appropriate bodies, issues or matters of public interest raised by members of P A G; and which may include submissions in response to public consultation exercises.

Charter 

Positive Action Group (PAG) believes that three ‘core principles’ should apply to the system of Government in the Isle of Man.

  • OPEN, ACCOUNTABLE GOVERNMENT
  • RIGOROUS CONTROL OF PUBLIC FINANCES; and
  • A FAIRER SOCIETY FOR ALL
Towards this end we RESOLVE that these steps be taken to implement the ‘core principles’:
The people to have the right to elect Members of the Legislative Council: - before this is implemented, no MLC may become a Minister.
The Chief Minister be popularly elected
The number of Ministries to be reduced.
The number of Departmental members to be reduced.
Equality of representation in each constituency be introduced

That Tynwald should introduce legislation to:

PASS A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT

PASS A CONFLICTS OF INTERESTS ACT

As a social scientist with many years experience of designing psychological research both here and in the UK, I listened with great interest to the description of a new research proposal into IOM TV exposure. A number of things struck me and led me to seek more information about the design of your study.

I wonder if I could seek more information about the actual design and methodology being used.

Yours Respectfully,

Mr Steven Dennett,
