The new members of the Isle of Man's House of Keys have re-elected Tony Brown as their speaker.
Mr Brown's nomination was unopposed on Tuesday
The Castletown MHK said he was honoured to be considered for the role again and the support of his colleagues.
Mr Brown was nominated by South Douglas MHK David Cretney, who said he was a man who acted "without fear or favour".
After being seconded by East Douglas MHK Brenda Cannell, there were no further nominations and his re-election was met by a round of applause.
"It was very pleasant to have that happen and I'm very honoured to have been elected speaker again," said Mr Brown.
"I enjoy the role of speaker and I'm very pleased that my colleagues feel I'm the person who can do that role fairly.
"I certainly say what I believe and say it quite openly - I don't hedge about."
