Two Wight MPs not enacted yet
Only one seat as Boundary Commission’s proposal for two seats has not been approved by Government yet.

A spokesperson for the Boundary Commission told OnTheWight,

“The recommendations of the 2018 review of constituencies by the Boundary Commission for England have not yet been debated in Parliament.

“Therefore, were there to be a general election before the new constituencies were enacted, that general election would be held on the existing constituencies.

“In the case of the Isle of Wight, this would mean that there would be one constituency covering the whole Island.”

Karl Love, IW Councillor for East Cowes is likely to stand. As may a ‘Respect the Referendum’ Labour candidate if Labour don’t select wisely.
