Liberal Party Chairman Vannin is considering a House of Keys seat later this year.
Paul Weatherall has announced his intention to run for Ayre & Michael in the September general election.
Announcing the move, he said: “After last year, we all know that we can’t take anything for granted in the way we live our lives. Our future will be shaped by how we respond to climate change and the next few years will see our government prepare for this, while helping us all recover from the economic consequences of covid.
“I will work to ensure that businesses can thrive and grow. Small businesses are the lifeblood of our island community‘s economy and are critical to future wage growth. I will support measures to help the national economy to recover after the lockdowns were interrupted, and I will strongly support the triumphant return of the TT in 2022.
“I believe that a lot of criticism of the government would be reduced by being more open with the residents of the island. Explain more clearly why the decisions that affect our lives are made and the reasoning behind them.”
Among its other priorities is supporting legislation that could provide residents with more freedoms, such as the ability to work from home when possible, as well as extending protections for pets and manx wildlife. .
