House of Keys to mark 150 years of public elections

Tue, 14 Mar 2017

The House of Keys will mark the 150th anniversary of the introduction of public elections on the Isle of Man later today.

Members of the Manx public have been able to decide who sits in the House of Keys since 1867.

A sitting of the House to mark the occasion will take place in the old House of Keys in Castletown this afternoon, after this morning's weekly Keys sitting in Douglas.

Members will hear about the introduction of democratic elections, as well as their impact on Manx politics over the last 150 years.
