LAMBERT BEACH RESORT, Tortola, VI- Just around 10:20 PM on Tuesday, March 8, 2022, controversial talk show host and social activist Rosemary Cindy Rosan announced her political candidacy for the 2023 General Elections of the Virgin Islands (VI).

Rosan was at the time speaking at a Women’s Dinner with Guest Speaker, US Virgin Islands (USVI) Senator Janelle K. Sarauw (I) at Lambert Beach Resort in East End, Tortola.

Ms Rosan said she will run as an Independent At Large candidate in the next general election. She did not state her platform or what made her run for office.

She; however, claimed she will keep her platform “authentic” and will “remain steadfast for a better Virgin Islands.”  

Would her past affect her?

Rosan has been known for her erroneous and slanderous statements on public radio and on her social media platforms, disrespecting members of the House of Assembly, and other residents who do not agree with her position on issues.

A few years ago, her job became redundant at BVI Tourist Board. 

Many social commentators thought she would have run with the opposition National Democratic Party (NDP) or even in the Seventh District, as she has publicly expressed her disdain for the current Seventh District Representative, Deputy Premier Dr the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley.

Rosan is often heard on radio calling him names and showing much disrespect to the Representative who is also the Minister for Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture.

2023 Candidates are growing

With her announcement, it brings now to four the declared candidates for the 2023 general elections constitutionally due by May of 2023.

The others are Lesmore Smith and Shaina M. Smith-Archer of Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM) and Bevin S. George, who has not stated his party affiliation.

The ruling Virgin Islands Party (VIP) of Premier and Minister of Finance Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1) has debunked the idea of a snap election.

      @I Like you Rosy; I'm not promoting any candidate or party but I do believe that our governmental system needs a major overhaul. It's unlikely that we would get a party to do it, they are too invested in the current system. So there is a place for independents.

      Agreed we need change, but that kind of mindset is why the BVI will never go forward. we need to stop this party nonsense and vote for People! When they align themselves to parties in order to get elected they end up always working for the party more than for the people putting them in.

    I have absolutely nothing against Cindy but I will not be voting in anyone who is belligerent, contentious and combative to be in Government. Persons must carry themselves with a level of respect even when and if they don't agree with others because our character defines who we are and the way in which she has conducted herself is not becoming. I mean, come one, a leader should be one that should set examples for others especially the young people; and though I might agree with very little that she's said, her approach was distasteful and demeaning. At no point in time should someone who desires to be a beacon of light/hope should stoop to certain low standards, especially as a lady. I am a firm believer of when show you their true colours you must see believe them and I've seen her true colours. There's many respectful and productive ways to show and communicate one's displeasure and opposition that are more effective than the ones she chose to take. Hence, I cannot support Cindy as I would like persons in Government who have more dignity and self pride.

        I want members of Government that respects themselves and others despite their differences. One that has earn respect by they way they carry and conduct themselves even when under pressure, criticism and when opposing others...because truth is we're never going to all agree with everything everyone say or do nor will everyone agree with everything we say or do but it's how we express ourselves in these moments make the difference. The children are the future, we ought to set the example for them especially those in authority and who claim to be leaders. Hence, it behoves us all especially those who aspire to be a leader to behave in an exemplary manner so that persons feel comfortable to let you lead them and entrust you with their well-being. Cindy intentions may be good, even though I personally don't agree with 70% of the things she says as the facts prove differently but her delivery is disgraceful. What's inside someone is what comes to the surface. At the end of the day, we are who we are. With that said, I'm not saying she's a bad person because I don't know her personally and truth is we all have our flaws (no one is perfect) but do I find her to be admirable? ...and truthfully, the answer is no. I think to be in certain capacities, we should possess certain qualities and it's my humble opinion that she lacking in some of the most important ones.

    BVI Election 2023

    May I say that this 2023 Election in the British Virgin Islands has become a Mockery! All these people running. Who will get the gold medal. Some of them not qualify. More women than men.

    It looks like we are going to have a Female Government and a Woman Premier according to Claude Skelton-Cline.

    Or either a Family Government because everybody is family, cousin and friend.
