President of Tynwald announces retirement

Tue, 06 Apr 2021

The President of Tynwald has announced he will retire from the role this summer.

Steve Rodan OBE MLC will leave his office on July 19.

Mr Rodan held a political career on Island since the 1970s.

He said: "To have served as President of Tynwald these last five years has been an immense privilege, and such a decision has not been taken lightly.

"The opportunity afforded by Tynwald for public service to the Isle of Man has been a hugely enjoyable experience for me all of these past 26 years, and in latterly carrying out the duty of President there could be no greater an honour.

"I am grateful for both the political friendship and exemplary support of parliamentary staff given over the years."
