This chapter addresses proposals from the Constitutional Issues Committee for a ministerial system. It discusses international developments, especially in Europe, that were likely to impact on the interests of the Isle of Man. The shift of the Island from a board system to a ministerial system is specifically elaborated. The chapter demonstrates the support of Tynwald for a full ministerial system and illustrates the respective roles of executive leader and Tynwald in selecting ministers. The debate over the roles of the Council of Ministers and Tynwald reveals that the balance of power may favour the Council.
