Former HOA Speaker joins PVIM, sees pivotal elections ahead

Former HOA Speaker joins PVIM, sees pivotal elections ahead

Former Speaker of the House of Assembly, Ingrid Moses-Scatliffe, is the latest candidate to join forces with the Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM), bringing their tally of candidates contesting the upcoming general elections to eight.
During a candidate launch for the party held last evening, Moses-Scatliffe said she felt the territory needed a reset and argued that the team assembled by the PVIM will be the one to achieve this.

“This is not an ordinary election. It cannot be business as usual. It is the most defining moment in the history of this territory because this is going to chart the way forward,” Scatliffe-Moses stated.

“We can help young people, individuals, [and] families, make this a better place to live, and to enjoy prosperity,” she added.

The former Speaker, who described herself as a principled person, said the territory needed strong, capable and competent leadership at such a critical juncture in its journey.

Easing discomfort

In the meantime, PVIM Chairman Ronnie Skelton said he was drawn back into the political arena after a four-year absence because of the discomfort he said was being felt by others in the community.

“You don’t live in a society by yourself, you live in a society with other people. If they’re uncomfortable, and they believe that you can do something about their discomfort, I think that you should leave your comfort zone and try to help. That’s why I am back,“ Skelton said.

Skelton said he was proud of the commitment shown by the group that he has assembled to try to build the country back from where it has fallen.

The PVIM slate currently includes four Territorial At-Large candidates – Skelton, Shaina Smith-Archer, Moses-Scatliffe and Stacy ‘Buddha’ Mather.

PVIM’s Deputy Chairman Melvin ‘Mitch’ Turnbull heads the list of district candidates and will be vying to retain his Second District seat. He will be joined by Sylvia Moses (D1), Paul Hewlett (D4) and Shereen Flax-Charles (D9).

Flax-Charles recently crossed the aisle in parliament, leaving the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) to join the PVIM after explaining that her views no longer aligned with the VIP.
