Isle of Man's new chief minister elected in October

The Isle of Man's new chief minister will be elected in October after the general elections.

Tony Brown, who currently holds the position, previously announced he would not stand for election in September.

Mr Brown held the position of speaker of the House of Keys since 2001 and chief minister since 2006.

All new political members successful in the general election on 29 September will be sworn in to the House of Keys on 4 October.

After 35 years in public service, Tony Brown said in July that the time was right for him to step down from Manx politics.

He began his political career in 1976 as a commissioner for Castletown and has since served 30 years in office as a member of the House of Keys.
