ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The House of Assembly (HoA) of the Virgin Islands (VI) will meet again on Thursday, September 13, 2018, according to spokesman, Mr Linton V. Leonard.

The meeting at the Parliamentary Chambers in Road Town, the Capital City, is scheduled for 10:00AM.

This will be the First Sitting of the Fourth Session of the Third HoA, after the Governor prorogued the Legislative  body on August 17, 2018.

The highlight of the resumption of the sittings, will be the ‘Speech from the Throne,’ to be read by United Kingdom (UK) appointed Governor, Augustus J. U Jaspert—his such first speech, as he represents the British Government.

We want elections-the people

Many residents however, are more focused on when the HoA will be dissolved instead, paving way for a new General Elections, which is due by June 2019.

CBN Radio 90.9 FM will carry live coverage of the HoA activities including the Government’s speech read by Mr Jaspert.

    Please tell Her Majesty we need to hear a plan of action from the throne, not some rehearsed, not written by her speech, that can not help us in this time of recovery.

    Even if you do not want to launch any commission of inquiries in our affairs to protect the fragility of our BVI and your future legacy; please advise this sitting government to set a date for early elections. It is the least you can do to protect all parties affected. This sitting government has been an embarrassment to democracy as we know it. At this point they are shuffling consultants and civil servants in positions to safeguard themselves from impending doom, but it is too little to late. It will not work.

    Call for Early Elections and let’s get on with the people’s business. Let’s make Our British Virgin Islands a People’s-First nation. This sitting government is keeping us back and you know it because of your expertise. Please stand for what’s right at this juncture in our story.
