Premier Fahie made the announcement at a contract signing ceremony for repair works at the Ralph T O’Neal Administration Complex on Friday.
He said he was unable to disclose the identity of the successful candidate but confirmed the person is local.
“I was able to get a correspondence that did me great joy. And no offence to anyone but … a Virgin Islander has been named as the new Attorney General,” the Premier said.
“I am so elated about that news, but I cannot name the person as yet because of the confidentiality of it because they only have been named, and certain processes have to go through,” he added.
Meanwhile, Minister for Transportation, Works & Utilities Kye Rymer, joined the Premier in congratulating the new successful candidate for the Attorney General post.
“I think that’s a great step for us moving forward in this territory in empowering our people, so that they can play a vital role in the development of our territory,” he said.
So often people are working hard at the wrong thing. Working on the right thing is probably more important than working hard.
