'I salute you sir'- Hon Turnbull to Premier Wheatley

Virgin Islands Premier and Minister of Finance, Dr the Hon Natalio D. Wheatley (R7) has been saluted by Minister for Natural Resources and Labour and Second District Representative, Hon Melvin M. Turnbull for his leadership of the Virgin Islands over the last several months.

Hon Turnbull was at the time speaking during the Continuation of the Ninth Sitting of the Fourth Session of the Fourth House of Assembly, on December 21, 2022.

“It has been a tremendous honour to fight the fight that we've been fighting for this Virgin Islands over the last seven months with each and every member, and I know there's a lot of work yet to do, but I believe we have been able to make an imprint and an impact to represent the continued democracy of these Virgin Islands,” he added.


Earlier in 2022, with the Government of the Virgin Islands and the Opposition, along with the people, against direct rule by the United Kingdom (UK), the Government and Opposition announced a coalition government on May 4, 2022, with the hope of staving off UK direct rule over the findings of a biased Commission of Inquiry (CoI), sponsored by the UK during the height of the global coronavirus pandemic.
