The Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM), moments ago, presented the candidates who it has selected to contest the upcoming General Elections.
The PVIM presented seven candidates, three of whom will challenge the Territorial At-Large seats and another four to vie for the Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Ninth electoral districts.
Their At-Large candidates are Apostle Curnal P Fahie, Shaina Smith, and party leader Ronnie Skelton.
Meanwhile, sitting legislator Melvin ‘Mitch’ Turnbull is seeking re-election for the Second District, taxi operator Karl Scatliffe will vie for the Fourth District, recently-resigned Commission of Customs Wade Smith for the Fifth, and Jose deCastro has been selected as the PVIM contender for the Ninth.
The political organisation announced its candidates inside their campaign headquarters in Fish Bay on Tortola.
“The PVIM has a good balance between youth and experience,” said movement leader Skelton during his address at Friday’s launch.
