It’s been called. The 2019 General Elections will be held on February 25.
Premier Dr D Orlando Smith announced the much-anticipated election date inside the House of Assembly in Road Town on Wednesday.
The announcement came shortly after he declared the House dissolved.
Five known political organisations have declared that they will contest the 2019 General Elections. Those included the Julian Fraser-led Progressives United, the Ronnie Skelton-led Progressive Virgin Islands Movement, and the traditional political parties — the National Democratic Party and the Virgin Islands Party headed by Myron Walwyn and Andrew Fahie, respectively.
The fifth party is the newly-formed Reform Action Alliance but it has not announced any of its candidates since launching on January 1.
