ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Elections Supervisor Juliette Penn moments ago today June 9 2015 gave the final unofficial result of the elections 2015, which was a confirmation of what had been indicated earlier – that the National Democratic Party has recorded a landslide win at the 2015 polls. The NDP took seven district seats and all four At Large seats and will form an 11 to 2 government in the House of Assembly.

The territory went to the polls yesterday June 8, 2015, a month and two days after Premier Dr The Honourable D. Orlando Smith announced the date for elections at a rally in Road Town on May 6, 2015.

Penn said the final official result will be released by the Elections Office in due course.

“The person elected in the 2015 general elections are in the First District Andrew A. Fahie with 652 votes, in the Second District Melvin ‘Mitch’ Turnbull with 600 votes, in the Third District Julian Fraser with 596 votes, in the Fourth District Mark H. Vanterpool with 717 votes, in the Fifth District Delores Christopher with 519 votes, in the Sixth District Alvera Maduro-Caines with 765 votes, in the Seven District Dr the Hon Kedrick D. Pickering with 607 votes, in the Eight District Marlon A. Penn with 943 votes and in the Ninth District Dr Hubert O’Neal with 669 votes,” she said.

Penn said those declared for the Territorial At Large seats are Myron V. Walwyn with 5,777 votes, D. Orlando Smith 5,752 votes, Ronnie W. Skelton 5,332 votes and Archibald C. Christian with 4,659 votes.

        This election was about money. And yes NDP showed they got lots of it. I never see so much contracts being given out in one month and money passing be careful of the trends you set.

      @ Just Saying: It's apparent that you do not know God or his power personally. If you did, the word "obeah" would not be a part of your vocabulary....

        God's hand would not have been involved in all those hand out of monies that passed in the last few days of election, his hand could not have been involved in it when people were threatened if they did not vote NDP. Those are little examples. His kept a shield on it I agree because in the end his hands would have allowed the part we wanted. Watch the hands of God in entirety as we move forward on our journey. Something is not right in our country and we need to keep in prayer with God and pray earnestly for our country and not pray selfishly.

        It wasn't called obeah in the Bible but it still was. And even though Moses was eventually successful down in Egypt, he still had it to contend with done by Pharoah's sorcerers. These fellows obeah strong yes, but gradually it too will be wiped out. Please. Don't be fooled. Their hands ARE dirty. Extremely.

      So true, didn't you know that God is the biggest obeah man? It's apparent that the NDP party prays to him maybe you should try that some day

    If their obeah is strong God mercy is stronger. Remember he does not like ugly and if any went on during this election then there will be a lot of punishment to come.BVI needs prayers as Myron said and it seems you all didn't do much so now it is time for the healing process to begin and with a lot of prayers too.

    With Myron getting 25 more votes than the premier don't you think he may want to be in charge. Talk the things trouble ahead and if he ain't want to listen to the leader before it gonna be worst this time around.Dr Smith show him who is large and who is in charge

    Congrats to the NDP for winning, which I think they ultimately should have, but I'm still hesitant about some of the district results. Strong candidates on the VIP were beaten to badly, in my opinion.
