General Elections could be months or, perhaps, even weeks away and, in a matter of days, the reported Ronnie Skelton-led Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM) will be having its official launch.
The launch will be held on Friday, December 7, at the PVIM campaign headquarters in the Skelton Bay Lot, Fish Bay, Tortola.
Speculation has been ripe concerning who will comprise the full complement of PVIM candidates.
Political observers are therefore expecting Friday’s launch to bring some clarity in relation to the party’s election contenders.
What remains largely certain is that the party’s candidates will include sitting legislators Skelton and Melvin ‘Mitch’ Turnbull.
As for sitting Territorial At-Large representative Archibald Christian, who is a known PVIM supporter, he told BVI News weeks ago that he will not be seeking re-election.
The PVIM will be going up against the Myron Walwyn-led NDP, the Andrew Fahie-led VIP, and the Julian Fraser-led Progressives United for the elections which must happen on or before April 16, 2019.
The PVIM is, largely, a breakaway organisation of the NDP.
