AN INDEPENDENT political group on the Isle of Wight is a step closer to choosing a parliamentary candidate for the 2015 General Election.

A shortlist of three candidates, which have not been named publicly, has been selected and interviews are due to take place this month.

Chairman of the Isle of Wight Association of Independents Peter Whiteman said: "We anticipate being in a position to endorse a candidate within the next two weeks.

"We desperately need an MP whose one and only interest is representing and promoting the needs of Islanders and the Island, completely free of the constraints of party politics and toeing the party line."
