There’s been a very long build up to this evening’s vote of the Executive Members of the Isle of Wight Conservative Association (IWCA).
The matter in hand – would they vote to support Andrew Turner, or vote to remove his selection? – both motions had been put forward.
After three hours of discussion and deliberation the decision of the Executive was returned.
According to Jessica Parker from BBC Radio Solent,
“Andrew Turner MP has won the support of #IoW Tory Party Exec after a turbulent few months”
Jessica went on to say that Chairman of the Association, Alan Wells, has said “he’ll go when his term ends in February”.
