Clash Likely Over Isle of Man Political Reform

Tax-news.com

15 November 1999


Political reform is set to be a hotly debated topic in the Isle of Man with two rival bills likely to be put before legislators. The first bill is likely to come from the House of Keys which is proposing a single chamber Tynwald popularly elected which would then split into the House of Keys and Legislative Council committees, rather than the present tri-cameral system. But it was also revealed last week that the Legislative Council has privately been producing its own bill which includes a popularly elected upper chamber based on a regional constituency format. The news has angered local MPs, who see the Legislative Council's bill as a 'spoiling tactic' to force the lower house to negotiate with them. The Legislative Council is presently elected by the lower house in a secret ballot, with no public involvement.
