Hon Flax-Charles likens exiting VIP to ending a ‘bad marriage’

Junior Minister for Trade, Economic Development, Agriculture and Fisheries Hon Shereen D. Flax-Charles (AL) has further broken her silence as it relates to exiting the Virgin Islands Party (VIP). Her resignation came days after she was rejected as a returning At-Large candidate at the VIP Congress Elections on February 4, 2023, due to 'incomplete' paperwork.

Hon Flax-Charles on February 12, 2023, resigned from the party and in her announcement said she will be seeking re-election in the 2023 General Election of the Virgin Islands; however, she has no political affiliation at the time.

However, while many believe that the decision at the VIP Congress might have been the decisive factor for the legislator’s exit from the VIP, Hon Flax-Charles said her decision was actually a long time coming.

This she disclosed while appearing as a guest on Cut Deep with host Rosemary Cindy Rosan on February 16, 2023.

“I pondered for a very long time, but you know, sometimes you're in a marriage, in a relationship and it always starts so, so sweet. And then things happen in between… you contemplate should I stay, should I go? How will it affect the children? How will it affect, in this case, the country?" she detailed.

Hon Flax-Charles said she reasoned and felt it was the best time to exit the party although she believed in some instances, that things would have worked out in the VIP.

However, while many believe that the decision at the VIP Congress might have been the decisive factor for the legislator’s exit from the VIP, Hon Flax-Charles said her decision was actually a long time coming while appearing as a Guest on the February 16, 2023, live steam of Cut Deep with host Cindy Rosan.

Timing was right to exit party - Hon Flax-Charles

When questioned on why she couldn’t hold out in the party for the next few weeks before the dissolution of the House of Assembly, Hon Flax-Charles said she felt the time was right to move on.

“I would say nothing happens before it's time. It's like fine wine…I did what I have to do at that particular time. As I mentioned before, it is something that I pondered for a very long time,” she said.

“You're in a marriage, you're in a relationship and you really figure that you can make a difference and maybe influence to get some things done and it just wasn't going to work and so I decided to move on.”

Meanwhile, Hon Flax-Charles said she believes her exit was for the best of the country and now she can focus on other areas to push the VI forward in the face of political uncertainty.
