ILS World and JCC Isle of Man will host its popular debate night at the Sefton Hotel on Thursday 29th October.

With less than a year to go to the general election, the debate will propose the motion: "This House believes that the people of the Isle of Man would be better served by a party political system."

The event will feature Kate Beecroft MHK (Proposer) and Chris Robertshaw MHK (Opposer).

Kate Beecroft said: "Open, honest and transparent party politics would most definitely serve the Island better than the system we currently have where a party is formed after the general elections. I will be delighted to explain exactly what I mean by that this."

Chris Robertshaw said: "I fully understand the frustrations of those who believe 'party politics' is the way forward for the Isle of Man, but that would be a retrograde step. What we really need are solutions that are fit for future purpose."

ILS World CEO Chris Eaton will chair the debate. He said: "I am particularly looking forward to chairing this year's ILS debate. With less than a year to go to the next Manx General Election our motion goes to the very heart of the Manx Constitution. With a team of passionate speakers representing both sides of the argument, the evening should be a lot of fun, but with a significant undercurrent of seriousness".

This is expected to be a popular event so please book your tickets early! If you cannot make the event, ILS World is staging an online vote, with the result to be revealed on the night. Place your vote here.
