Deputy Governor David Archer, Jr has been appointed to act as governor.
His appointment took effect today and will run until Monday, April 2.
A government media release said Archer is acting in the position in the absence of Governor Augustus Jaspert who is on annual leave and will return on April 3.
“Mr Archer took the Affirmations of Allegiance and Due Execution of Office to act in the post of Governor administered by Her Ladyship the Honourable Justice Ann-Marie Smith,” the release said.
Archer was only sworn in as Deputy Governor of the British Virgin Islands this month.
