Isle of Man voting 'inequalities' scrutinised

The Manx government is calling for public input in its attempts to iron out democratic "inequalities" on the Isle of Man.

The current electoral system means some island residents are given more votes than others, depending on where they live.

A government spokesman said there were also great variations in the number of voters per politician.

The Boundary Review Committee will be holding several public meetings.

The group is expected to look at the number of voters per Member of the House of Keys (MHKs), as well as the restructuring of Manx constituencies.

The study is also expected to look into whether MHKs should focus more on national or local issues.

The meetings will take place at the Promenade Methodist Church Hall in Douglas on 17 April, Sulby Community Hall on 18 April, Arbory Parish Hall on 19 April and St John's Methodist Church Hall on 23 April.
