WITH an estimated 420 candidates and 339 seats, the Isle of Wight Council faces its most complex elections to date in May.

As well as the Isle of Wight Council elections on Thursday, May 2, it will be the first time all 33 town and parish councils will have their elections on the same date.

This month’s full council meeting was told because of the complexity, the count would be held on the following day.
