Local legislator Archibald Christian has been sacked from his position as Junior Minister of Tourism.
Governor Augustus Jaspert fired Christian from the post on Thursday, November 15.
Premier Dr D Orlando Smith told members of the media that the governor sacked Christian on his (the Premier) recommendation.
Christian’s removal from the post follows his resignation from the National Democratic Party (NDP) this week.
Meanwhile, Christian told BVI News Thursday afternoon that on account of him being fired, he is now officially associating himself with the Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM).
Government minister Ronnie Skelton is being reported as the leader of the PVIM but that is yet to be confirmed.
