Tynwald and The Executive
Tynwald assigns executive functions to its nominated Chief Minister. At its first sitting, following the five-yearly general elections for Members of the House of Keys, the Chief Minister is nominated. From 2021, the Members of the House of Keys vote for the Chief Minister for the life of the House of Keys. He is then appointed by the Lieutenant Governor on the basis of the nomination. The Chief Minister similarly nominates Ministers, from the Members of Tynwald, to the Departments of Government to sit with him to form the Council of Ministers.
