Manx government welcomes election feedback

The Manx government has welcomed the findings of a team of election observers.

The Manx government has welcomed the findings of a team of election observers and says it is committed to making elections as inclusive as possible.

It comes after the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association was invited to monitor the island's election process last week.

The group said while the general election last week 'broadly met international standards', access for disabled voters could be improved.

The Cabinet office said the government will now undertake a review with "a key focus on accessibility and convenience".

A spokesman added that an Isle of Man Electoral Commission will also be appointed for the first time to look at constituency boundaries and other election issues.
