ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The Virgin Islands is looking at a possible coalition government, after the results of the general elections on Monday, April 24, 2023, saw no clear winner.

Polls were opened at 6:00 AM and closed at 6:00 PM, with over 16,000 people eligible to vote.

      Neither NDP1/2 nor VIP will accept Fraser as Premier. Mitch might try to jump to VIP for a deputy spot, but VIP won't accept that either.

      Maybe the VIP will call Budha and try to work out something with him. But if there is a stalemate, the Governor could select Natalio. Either way, it's looking like a VIP government (without Fraser).

      Strong brand you say?? Figures from 2019 election 1,5,7,9 and 4 at-large. 2023 results 1,4,5,7,9 and 1 at-large that can’t be called strong and please note the turn out was very disappointing so if there was strong then the turnout should have been higher. Also remember district 6 former rep was voted in As a member of the NDP and cross the floor. I would say that the VIP didn’t do enough ground work in the districts within the 4 years

    This is interesting to watch if Mitch will work with Myron. Or if Mitch will work with Lorna. Or if Myron will work with Mitch. Or if Marlon will work with Ronnie. Or if Fraser will work with any of them unless he is Premier. Or will Marlon take a back seat. Or will they give Myron a Ministry seeing he is under an investigation as well as others. Or will Ronnie work with Lorna. Will Mather be allowed to be a factor?

    This is a MUST SEE!

    VIP is in the best position.

    In an earlier post I predicted that the Premier's lack of courage in clearly vindicating Hon V Wheatley and Hon. C Malone would cost him and indeed it did. The voters sent a clear message by voting for Walwyn in the 6th that there is at least some doubt about the intentions and motivations of the COI , yet this Premier was at best tentative in his endorsement of both Hon V Wheatley and Hon C Malone ; and that action has now possibly cost him his Premiership . He acted more like a District Representative than the Leader of the Party .
    His heart seemed to be with the Unity Party a coalition that he put together rather than the VIP a party that he came to . Very little support on the District level and a feeling of every man for themselves.

    The NDP ran as two separate parties to fool the people into putting them back in power. Mattie’s is the only one that wasn’t there before. Lorna was the premier not her husband. I’m no VIP fan, but I believe that NDP will do the Governor’s bidding. As for Fraser, good luck.The voters that stayed home had insights into what the NDP’s plans were. God save the BVI.

    The word on the street is that an agreement has been reached between NDP and PVIM with Ronnie being Premier and Marlon being Deputy Premier. However, it is rumored that J. Fraser aka Liberator is angling/demanding to be Premier or no deal. The liberator holds the trump card and is leveraging his position, for no government can be formed without him. He is not the only play or king maker though. It is also rumored that Lorna Smith, the former First Lady, is making a play for Premier. VIP is also a player and can cut a deal to form the government. Moreover Fraser’s play is not new and has been done in the past. Former Chief Minister Willard Wheatley, an independent candidate, leveraged his position into becoming Chief Minister in 1971 under the United Party. He did it again in 78/79 under the VIP. Former Chief Minister C.B . Romney also leverage his position into becoming Chief Minister under the United Party. Let’s be honest Fraser is a veteran, long-serving elected member and the clock is ticking. And this may be his last opportunity to becoming Premier, joining the list elitist list of BVI leaders. He is playing the hand that he is dealt. However, he is not the only one with the leveraging power though. Any one member can play hard ball. Some may label the Liberator’s move as self-fish, but everyone act in their own self-interest. Ronnie and Marlon acted in their self-interest, splitting up the spoils. This is a chess game being played so who will checkmate whom and if no one is willing to compromise and put pride, ego aside, it will be a draw. And the possibility of the governor choosing a leader/Premier. I said it was Fraser’s last chance to be Premier. Well, it is also Ronnie’s and Lorna’s. Marlon and Walwyn got time. Just a thought in Walwyn’s case will the Guv seat him or waiting until his legal issue is resolved.What does the constitution say.

    It is said Wonders never cease, what if it becomes true this time around?

    Can we see Malon and Mitch going with VIP as in the unity Gov to form the Gov? They would keep their ministry and BVI move on with a BVI Gov?

    Let us see where this goes. Imagine the NDP, PVIM and PU join hands but not hearts because who will back down to let the other be Premier? You have Ronnie, Walwyn, Frazar, Malon and even Mitch wanting to be Premier. Dont count Lorna out, she too can wake up and decide she should be Premier. OMG!!! what a thing to tell the King.

    People, there can only be ONE Premier, yes only one. Then who will it be??? Governor is waiting, England is waiting and of course, we the people are waiting.

    It is my hope, that Showanday will wake up, if he is not up yet and do the right thing for the love of country. Frazar was born and breed in VIP, now might be his time to take the helm, bring him back home to where he belongs, with VIP. Offer him Premier, Showanday was already Deputy Premier, this should be no rocket science, go back to being Deputy and let the country roll on. BAM! Bam! Bam!!!!! VIP All the way!!! Come VIP, lets move on!! Halleluia

    I'm sorry that the young white man didn't get voted in. He seems to have great promise. Perhaps one for the future.

    If Frazer does not join the VIP and joins the PVIM & NDP I will never see him in the same light, prideful and dirty. However; I think the VIP should go to Mate, or Penn; bring it home clean. Do not take anybody that is prideful, backstabbing, and under investigation. VIP pull up your socks and pants and do the thing.

    Anyone notice that three of the districts carried more total votes for opponents than for the winner? That is, winning with less than 50% of the vote...

    2nd - Fraser had 74 fewer votes than his 2 opponents totalled.
    4th - Hodge-Smith collected 120 fewer votes than her three opponents totalled together.
    9th - Wheatley had 194 fewer total votes than his collective opposition mustered together.

    The latter two mean not exactly a "strong" showing for the VIP.

    You discredit your own statement. The same Fraser endorsed both NDP and PVIM.

    How can CSC be sorry that the young white man did not get voted in?? Did you see him in your prophecy?

    What you should really be sorry about is that you prophelied that a woman would immerge as the first Woman Premier, Where and who is she? Nor Lorna for sure.

    You also prphelied that Walwyn should run at large and that Alvera would whip him, well where is Myron and where is Alvera?

    Go back to your Bible and read what qualifies a true prophet, his prophecy must come to pass. Otherwise he will be classified as a lying prophet which is what your are now classified as. Shame!, Shame! Shame!!! What a thing to tell the King.

    Congratulations to my cousin Stacy. I wish you well in doing for the people. Your the only one ain't a crook, you didn't pay for anyone to come home to vote for you like many of the others did.I shall see great things that you will do.
