Douglas South

Douglas South is a House of Keys constituency in Douglas, Isle of Man.

Although the constituency is named Douglas South, its current (2020) boundaries place it in the west rather than the south of Douglas.

Like all the Keys constituencies, the constituency returns two members to the House of Keys. Following a General Election in October 2021, the incumbents are Mrs Claire Christian and Sarah Maltby.
