VIP confirms candidates for the Third and Eighth districts
The Virgin Islands Party (VIP) has officially confirmed its candidates for the Third and Eighth electoral districts.
Former Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Communications and Works Dr Arlene Smith-Thompson is the VIP’s Third District candidate while former Deputy Commissioner of Customs Dean Byron Fahie is the party’s candidate for the Eighth.
The VIP Congress ratified the two candidates Saturday evening, September 29.
The VIP only now needs to select a candidate for the Second Electoral District to complete its round-up of candidates for all nine electoral districts.

Thumbs up if you like these candidates
Thumbs down if you don’t like these candidates
Thumbs up if you think Arlene going win district 3
Thumbs down if you think Julian Fraser going win district 3 again.
Thumbs up if you want Dean with 8th district
Thumbs down if you want Marlon win 8th district again
The 8th is sticking with Smurf and you could take that to the bank. We need people who have a heart for the people of our community and has the drive and intellect to move our country forward. Not someone who all of a sudden thinks they care about our community. Where has he been as this time? He better go sit down!
Speak for yourself !!! Not on behalf of the 8th!!!
I guess you’re speaking on behalf of the 8th? I heard they done poping champagne. We will see when the votes are counted.
Likes don’t win elections, votes do! Watch the game.
Ndp, Can’t defeat VIP this time!!
Thumbs up if you think VIP have better candidates
Thumbs down if you think NDP have better candidates
The only person on VIP not getting in is Natalio Wheatley for 7 district.
Myron scared now buddy this going force him to go back to the draw board
Scared of what? When the campaigning start and people can no longer hide behind sweet words you will hear the news! Watch and wait is the game.
The team is really looking good. Two great additions
They are willing to sacrifice themselves to public scrutiny and opinions and I wish them the very best.
For those of you who say Arlene is the best thing for district 3, could not be more wrong (and if you know better; more stupid).
The mere fact that these two candidates chose to team up under Fahie, tells allot who they are. It was Fahie and Fraser who went to the house of Assembly time and time again to argue non sense, in desperate attempts to make themselves look good. Truth be told, they are all no better, they (the VIP) are worst for this next cycle of elections.
LOOKING GOOD VIP WE HERE IN THE US WILL START GETTING OUR PEOPLE TOGETHER WHO STILL DOES REURN REGULARY. WE WILL TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY AND PUT IT IN THE ONES THAT CARES. OUR PREMIER LET US DOWN.
Your IP address is showing BVI..stop lie! Lol
To whom it may concern
That is what is wrong with the country….those who choose to live outside deciding the fate of those who decide to stay and build the country. Wrong. Wrong
They should not be allowed to vote. Time factor should come into play. How long they living out the country. Do they pay taxes if of workforce age etc
Put that in the pipe and smoke it
Does that mean that all expatriates living in BVI and paying taxes should be allowed to vote? They choose to live there, pay taxes and build the country!
In the past expatriates were allowed to vote, because there were not enough locals to vote. We even had expats in the legislature. When the money pot started to grow, the greedy ‘Leaders’ wanted all for themselves and changed the law. Correct me if I am wrong.
Can you vote in any country in the world if you are not a citizen of that country. You all take Virgin Islanders for a$$es man.
Go VIP. Its your time. You took your losses with dignity. The game, (and that’s what it seems our politics has com down to), was played very unfairly; perhaps most unfairly ever with NDP calling the Snap election; buying up all the air time, tying up the campaign venues and everything else. No wonder they are in disarray for their overly aggressiveness.
We going buy up even more airtime this trip!! Wait!
Lmbao @ NDP attack (not) – ayo can buy up all the slots and print a million free t-shirts as you guys have pillaged the treasury to the extent that you guys appear desperate to win at any cost! We the pp of the greater VI have a grand surprise in store for ya’ll! Watch this space….
I really cant see a winner here
Is the VIP serious? They got to be joking! Beat marlon and frazer with these?…..Huh! Foy is really desperate.
Well you know who will get all the cooking jobs…
I know somebody who suffered from a nervous break down
and I know someone whom adores the scenery and aromas when spoofing along the hershey highway! Also we know of the tNT monster as well….smell that..?
OJ will win in the 3rd. Remember I said it.
He will be a fool to leave his good job for more licks….Remember NDP broke up in two now so he will only get half the votes that he got last time
Split in two? we will see.
The only thing that’s gonna mess up the VIP if them put that Jamaican for at large
Have to agree
If they ain’t choose the esteem then their at large dead
Marlon has lost touch. He has changed.
You people are really desperate. You really have nothing to come after smurf with. You really could say that Marlon lost touch? He’s they most connected politician.
I heard you desperate VIP members are up and down trying to smare his name. The proof will be seen when the votes are counted.
These blogs never fail to surprise me. Congratulate and wish the candidates well folks.
Good luck Dean!! From the people to the people
My good friend,the Dean. Good move. You will do well. God bless you.
Waste of time … strupes.
2007 all over again. Go right ahead and vote for emotion and not the country. Be warned!
