BVI: Elected parties locked in talks about coalition


(BVI News) Members of the four political organisations that will make up the next House of Assembly have been locked in discussions about forming a coalition since the last evening when the results of the general elections was announced.The previously governing Virgin Islands Party (VIP) landed six of 13 seats, the National Democratic Party (NDP) won three, the Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM) won three, and Julian Fraser of Progressives United won the remaining seat.

A post-election statement from the PVIM on Tuesday said: “We have met with all elected persons and groups, namely Progressives United, the National Democratic Party and the Virgin Islands Party, to decide the next step as we seek to form a government in the best interest of the aspirations of the people of the Virgin Islands.”
