The party contested a handful of by-elections before picking up its first seat. Andrew Bentley is the first Green to have been elected, winning a seat on the Douglas Borough Council after a by-election.
The Green Party currently have 2 seats in local government. Green Councillor Andrew Bentley sits on the Douglas Borough Council, having won a by-election in August 2018.
