Claims Lonan candidates tried to 'block' elections

Mon, 11 Apr 2016

Lonan Parish Commissioners' candidates put their names forward to 'block' others in the Garff constituency.

That's the claim from the chair of Laxey Village Commissioners - last week the three applicants subsequently retracted their submission.

It means Garff joins six other contested elections on April 28th - but the actions of candidates in Lonan may have triggered a by-election costing around £1,500.

Elections will take place in Port St Mary, Peel, Patrick, Castletown and Victoria and Hills wards in Douglas.
