BAUGHER'S BAY, Tortola, VI – Following the Hon Andrew A. Fahie (R1) led Virgin Islands Party (VIP) victory at the February 25, 2019, General Elections in the Virgin Islands (VI), social commentator & VIP supporter Mr Claude O. Skelton-Cline is urging the people of the territory to hold the new government accountable as they go about their business.

Mr Skelton-Cline made the warning during his commentary on the Tuesday, March 5, 2019, edition of his radio show “Honestly Speaking” on ZBVI 780am radio, where he implored that if citizens don’t remain vigilant, they run the risk of allowing the VIP government to become like the Dr D. Orlando Smith and Myron V. Walwyn led National Democratic Party (NDP 1) of the past.

Stay Engaged – Skelton-Cline

“We encourage you not to fall out of the process, yes election day was on the 25th, but you need to remain a part of the process, stay engaged with your representative no matter who you vote for,” the man of the cloth told his listening audience.

He says that with the elections, there are several new men and women who sit at the table of decisions, who have a responsibility to be good stewards of the territory and the people of the country should ensure that they remain good. 

“Let’s hold our elected officials accountable, make sure our systems work… strengthening our systems… making whatever amendments or additions to our legislative laws, ensuring that are in fact moving in the right direction,” he implored.

Past Mistakes

According to Mr Skelton-Cline, Citizens have a right to stay involved and stay engaged, “do not sit back, let us not make the same mistakes we have made before but let’s hold all of us accountable for where we are,” he said.

      That's besides the point. And if it's your point let the NDP answer to the millions squandered and missing. A right a right.
