ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Virgin Islands News Online (VINO) can confirm that former Deputy Premier, Attorney General and Deputy Governor R. Danica Penn QC, will run At-Large with National Democratic Party 2 (NPD 2), breakaway group called, Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM).

This was confirmed to VINO from senior PVIM sources who said “she is in.”

For months, Ms. Penn a former Virgin Islands Party (VIP) member, has been chatting up Hon Julian Fraser RA (R3) who has formed his own political party, Progressives United (PU), but to date has not been able to announce any candidates.

Many had speculated that Ms. Penn would run with Hon Fraser, but it appears that this will not be the case.

Candidates being launched

The NDP 2 known as the PVIM is expected to launch some of its political candidates this evening December 7, 2018, at their Fish Bay, Tortola headquarters according to a press statement.

Many NDP members – who had issues with the new co-leader of Government, Hon Myron V. Walwyn (AL) – left the main NDP once Mr. Walwyn, the Education and Culture Minister became the leader in an internal election earlier this year.

NDP 1 Members leaving including Deputy Premier Dr Kedrick D. Pickering (R7), Hon Ronnie W. Skelton (AL), Hon Archibald C. Christian (AL), Hon Melvin M. Turnbull (R2), NDP spokeswomen Ms. Eileen L. Parsons OBE, Shaina M. Smith, among others.

Neither Ms. Penn or PVIM Chairman Skelton could be reached for comments, before publication time.

    Really does not matter what party she runs with I will not be voting for her. Who would hold the kind of offices she has held and petition Britain to come take over months before a next general election. So if she wins and Britain in fact takes over does she expect to be paid as an elected leader? Really????? For what????
