      VIP waited until they had their full thirteen candidates to DECIDE ON AN ELECTION DATE…

      …. AND posted their candidates 8:38pm around the same time as the Election date announcement.

      We are supposed to be some sort of democracy. Individuals have the right to vote for whom they wish. We keep seeing comments that “me and my family are going to vote for……”. Are you a dictator? It would serve you right if they said they would vote with you, but then voted for someone else.

    VIP has their strengths and weaknesses, but it is clear that the status quo joined with the governor to land a well-organized attack against the VIP to try to make the good they have done for thousands of persons look bad or wrong and thereby try to influence the public's minds in the negative towards them so they will be voted out. I did not vote for VIP before, but I will be doing so this time. They are the only political party that looks out for the common people.

    virgin islands party have done a lot for our people over the years: recall those day when they help to build back wall for the people

    Good Hon Fahie or Bad Hon Fahie, because of Andrew Fahie, our children now have a new & clean building to move forward with their education

    2017 was the hurricane and it took a VIP party in 2022-2023 to build the facility for the young generation

    The VIP contributed deeply to the formation of the Unity Party( as you know the establishment of this new Party partially disrupted Great Britain’s intent to disrupt the constitution likewise the freedoms of the BVI-People(do the maths/ London left our people follow the 1834 disruption of “the slave trade” BUT 2022 London back commanding BVI what to do

    It is amazing how some of U among us forget the good old slavery day(how can one race enslaved another)

    This day need to be legislated and be permanent and not having a Premier playing games with people's minds. There should be a day designated as election day. Nandatory and expected.

      i second that motion because we are now in 2023 so the time have come for there to be a definite date for elections: the days for playing games should be pushed behind us and we move forward with the future of our people

    To: The Premier

    From: Concern Citizens of this Territory

    Another Snap Election just like what happened in the Past

    The Other Parties are not ready. The time is too short for other Parties to be prepare.

    We are not voting for anybody until they get the Roads fixed, all the derelict: Vehicles, Boats, Containers, Trucks and Machineries, clean up from this Territory.

    The whole place looks like a garbage heap. Everywhere you go is garbage and derelict items. Side Walks and Road Side have become parking lots and garages. To add to the distress, everywhere you go especially in the Road Town and Purcell area the place smell stink with sewerage and water running here and there.

    Furthermore, the Sixth (6) District has been neglected since the 2017 Flood and Hurricanes and it looks like we do not have a representative anymore.

    Signed: Concern Citizens
