Seventh vote - Braidwood & Anderson agreed between them that only one name at a time be put before the House of Keys

Braidwood first
Then if he is not elected Anderson next

 

No other nominations at this stage

 

And the outcome - 12 votes for Braidwood

 

So just Anderson being nominated for vote number 8

Eighth vote - the worry of having to come back for another ballot during the summer break obviously proved too much for some

 

One nomination for Anderson, who is elected with 14 votes

 

So two more bye-elections for the House Of Keys to look forward too!!

Incredible, simply incredible.

We really do need a referendum on the future of the Keys bolt hole for waste of space MHKs who know full well that they would have no choice in a public vote.

Electing Crookall to MLC makes about as much sense as electing Herod onto the Board of the Bethlehem Playgroup Association. The mans an idiot and electing him just shows bad ther present lot are. God helps us.

Ridiculous! Our Government are a joke. This is an embarrassment to democracy. I'm so angry and frustrated by this. Two more bi-elections when MHKs shouldn't be allowed to jump ship like this. Where's the integrity? They were elected by the people to serve them for five years. This is so wrong.
