HUNTUMS GHUT, Tortola, VI – Chairman of the Virgin Islands Party (VIP), Hon Andrew A. Fahie has intensified the 2019 elections battled when he suggests that some parties contesting the upcoming 2019 General Elections in the Virgin Islands (VI) may have to manufacture votes to win.

Hon Fahie made those statements on Saturday, January 19, 2019, at the launch of the D5 campaign of Kye M. Rymer where he expressed pleasure that his candidate launched on the topic of basketball and doing more for the district.

Time is of the essence

Speaking metaphorically to the elections season in the VI, Mr Fahie said, “What I like about basketball is that you have a certain amount of time, to get to do what you have to do, and you have to get it done before the time is finished.”

He said in order to win the game, by the time the clock finishes, a team must be in front of the opposing team to be declared the winner.

“No matter how down you get in the middle of the game, once you keep pushing, moving and going forward and stick with the plan... You have a chance to be the winner,” he said in reference to the VIP’s fight to claim the 2019 elections victory away fron the Hon Myron V. Walwyn (AL) led National Democratic Party (NDP 1).

“You cannot win it on your own [basketball], you need a team and your team must be willing to play together, you need at least five to start and if you don’t have 5, you forfeit,” he said.

13 Candidates at VIP – Hon Fahie

According to Hon Fahie, “The Virgin Islands Party has 13 [candidates] to start, so what we will do is forfeit all those who don’t have 13 from winning the next General Elections.”

In refinancing speculations that elections rigging may be on the horizon, Hon Fahie said, “We don’t have to import votes to win, we don’t have to manufacture votes to win, we are going to teach them that the power of the people is greater than those in power.” 

The Chairman of the VIP is adamant that if you don’t have the talent in working together, you will always lose and just like in the game of basketball, uniforms and looks do not matter, rather, pure talent and skills.

    I have a dream! I wish the BVI community can stop rotating the same party election after election! You guys are so predictable! One term is ndp another is VIP. Vote individuals who you believe that will listen to you and get the job done. If you guys vote VIP or NDP and complain after. I will laugh at your stupidity!

    This Brown Bummer is amazing. If you throw paint on a leopard will the spots not still remain under the surface until the paint washes off? Hon Fahie you have not matured one bit. You think because you have 13 candidates it means you are home free? Not all your candidates Sir are what and who you think they are, you could have 3 good ones and 10 clowns. SO!! WE the people will decide who we are electing and we don't care if you had 5, 8 or the full 13. Not all of them are electable and the people will learn shortly. Now stop with the stupid antics because we do know you from your past and get the hell on with it.

      You are so right. After all of that, he can bet on only two districts (1 and 9). The rest plus all four at large is up for grabs. In fact only 2 at large up for grabs as Ronnie and Myron will be re-elected. People aint saying a word.

    How about telling us you and your party’s plan to deal with the current state of the territory. Be a bigger man (no pun intended) and let us know.

      These people are crazy to think about electing the ndp back in government. They are stupid. How can these same people who were bawling for almost 4 years re-elect the ndp again? You people are sick and need to stop making the same mistakes over and over. wake up people!
