NDP snubs Dr Hubert O’Neal? Coy W. Levons running in D9

NDP snubs Dr Hubert O’Neal? Coy W. Levons running in D9

Loyalty will have to take a back seat it seems, as the National Democratic Party (NDP) seems to have moved on from former legislator Dr Hubert O’Neal in favour of Coy W. Levons, the Former Director of Civil Aviation in the Ministry of Transportation, Works, and Utilities.

Information reaching our newsroom from sources in the NDP is that Mr Levons was the most popular choice.

Dr O’Neal was defeated in the 2019 elections by incumbent Ninth District Representative Hon Vincent O. Wheatley.

It remains unclear what platforms Mr Levons be campaigning on or his plans for the Ninth District.

Sources close to the NDP speaking to our newsroom on condition of anonymity have claimed that the NDP’s is racing to full their 2023 Elections slate with candidates as the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) last evening completed their slate with the full 13 candidates.

The party, desperate to reach a full slate, has reportedly been approaching declared Independent candidates to run on its ticket.

Information reaching our newsroom from sources in the NDP is that Mr Levons was the most popular choice after Dr O’Neal failed to take a seat in the last two elections.



Desperate NDP?

The NDP and Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM), which was a breakaway of the NDP prior to the 2019 elections, held talks for a merger but failed to reach an amicable agreement.

Reports are the two parties could not all agree on either Ronnie W. Skelton or Hon Marlon A. Penn (R8) leading the party into the 2023 elections.
