Samuel, however, told BVI News on Wednesday that Maduro-Caines’ move does not affect him politically.
“I don’t think that it speaks to me specifically because the VIP has an internal process for candidate selection prior to any election which involves the district committee. So I don’t think that her transition specifically dictates my future,” Samuel said.
He continued: “I am still a member of the VIP congress, and I am still very interested in the overall growth and development of the BVI on the whole and specifically the Sixth District. I wouldn’t comment specifically on what has happened because each elected politician has to strategize and make decisions in order for them to be able to fulfil their commitment to the people that voted for them. And, in doing so, they would have to make strategic decisions, and I guess that is what she did.”
Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.
