A final candidate has been added to the Progressive Virgin Island’s Movement (PVIM) team.
The party announced former Director of the BVI International Affairs Secretariat, Sylvia Romney-Moses, as its candidate for the First Electoral District.
“Sylvia brings to this team a vast amount of experience and leadership qualities,” said party leader, Ronnie Skelton who announced her candidacy on Friday evening.
Her campaign kicks off in the First District community of Capoon’s Bay on Saturday, February 2.
The addition of Romney-Moses now brings the number of candidates on the PVIM team to nine. There are a total of 13 electoral seats up for grabs during a BVI general election.
Meanwhile, the remaining slate of PVIM candidates comprises clergyman Curnal P Fahie, engineer Shaina Smith, Horse Owners Association president Lesmore Smith, and Skelton who are all At-Large contenders.
The party is further fielding sitting legislator Melvin ‘Mitch’ Turnbull to seek re-election in the Second District; taxi operator Karl Scatliffe who will vie for the Fourth District; recently-resigned Commissioner of Customs Wade Smith for the Fifth; and former Deputy Projects Manager in the Ministry of Finance, Jose de Castro, who to contest the Ninth District seat.
