NDP 1 & NDP 2 still can’t get together again!- Hon Carvin Malone

NDP 1 & NDP 2 still can’t get together again!- Hon Carvin Malone

The National Democratic Party, referred to by many as NDP 1, and Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM), referred to as NDP 2, have been called out for their hypocrisy by At Large Representative Hon Carvin Malone.

Out of NDP breakup came PVIM

It was in late 2018 that there was a major fallout in the NDP, which resulted in several resignations and the formation of PVIM.

But even before word got out about the breakup, the situation was likened to the nursery poem Humpty Dumpty, as many were optimistic that the party was headed for a permanent breakup.

For the 2023 elections; however, the two parties conveniently explored the possibility of a merger and after neither party could settle on who would lead a re-united NDP, talks collapsed.

This has left both parties scrambling to get a full slate.
At Large Representative Hon Carvin Malone has stated that the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) has a strong record to defend and will be doing so in the face of untruths being spread, especially by NDP members.



NDP 1&2 try to mend

In the case of the NDP, it has seen the return of Kedrick D. Pickering, who had split from the party in 2019 following a fallout with its former chairman Myron V. Walwyn.

This has caused Hon Malone to quip about the NDP and PVIM debacle being like Humpty Dumpty.

“And here it is again, I remind you that Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king’s horses and all the kings’ men could not put NDP 1 and NDP 2 together again,” Hon Malone joked during the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) campaign launch on Virgin Gorda on Friday, March 17, 2023.

Hon Malone further stated that the VIP has a strong record to defend and will be doing so in the face of untruths being spread especially by NDP members.

“They tried to put one and one together, and they coming up with 3 and 4 and then try to fool [you], how is this going to work?”
It was in late 2018 that there was a major fallout in the National Democratic Party (NDP), which resulted in several resignations and the formation of Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM) led by Ronnie W. Skelton, left. Hon Marlon A. Penn (R8), right, now leads the NDP. Talks to unite the party for the 2023 General Elections have failed.



‘I have seen never come to an end’- Hon Malone

Hon Malone joked again that he has seen never come to an end.

“You have a Minister who challenged our last Premier to come At Large because if you want to prove yourself come At Large. After he was done [At Large] he went into the district,” Hon Malone said, referring to the controversial former Education Minister Myron V. Walwyn, who had challenged former Premier Andrew A. Fahie to run At Large.

Mr Walwyn ended up suffering a heavy defeat at the February 25, 2019, General Elections as an At Large candidate and has now moved to run for a Sixth District seat in the 2023 elections.

“You have two members who said they would never work together again and what happened? They are together again. We have seen never come to an end,” Hon Malone remarked in referring to Dr Pickering and Mr Walwyn ending up back on the same NDP team.

He emphasised that the parties have been resorting to trying to fool the people about the VIP’s performance in office but the party will be defending its record.

“But we have a proud record, a stalwart record that we have to defend,” Hon Malone stated.
