PVIM to launch 8 candidates for 2023 General Election!

PVIM to launch 8 candidates for 2023 General Election!

The breakaway group that left the National Democratic Party (NDP) and formed its own group in 2018, Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM), is expected to launch eight (8) candidates this evening, Monday, March 6, 2023.

4 At-Large & 4 District Candidates

Sources close to the group told our news centre that the PVIM has four At-Large candidates and four District candidates and is working on another two candidates for the 2023 General Election of the Virgin Islands.

Expected to fill the four At-Large slots are Mr Ronnie W. Skelton (Party Chairman), former Speaker of the House of Assembly Ingrid A. Moses, Shaina M. Smith-Archer and Stacy Mather (Executive Director of Youth Empowerment Programme).

It is our understanding that the District slots filled so far are: D1- Sylvia C. Moses, D2- Incumbent Hon Melvin M. Turnbull (Deputy Party Chairman), D4- Paul A. Hewlett aka ‘Paul on the Ball’ and D9- Hon Shereen D. Flax-Charles, a current At-Large Representative who jumped from the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) to PVIM last month.

Meanwhile, it is our understanding that some are already raising issues about the eligibility of Mr Mather to run, as he was born in the United Kingdom and allegedly none of his parents are born in the Virgin Islands.

It is unclear when and if the other District seats will be filled or if they will be announced today; however, the PVIM is actively speaking to many potential candidates, but some have already backed out.

Former Speaker of the House of Assembly (HoA) Ingrid A. Moses will be running as an At-Large Candidate in the 2023 General Election with Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM).

4-party affair

The PVIM will face the VIP who has already announced 10 candidates out of 13 and the NDP who has only announced 3 candidates. The Hon Julian Fraser (R3) led Progressives United (PU) is expected to come to the table with candidates, but it is unclear when.

We will bring more details as the story develops.

Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM) will be declaring eight (8) of its candidates for the 2023 General Election this evening, March 6, 2023.
