(BVI News) Former First Lady of the territory Lorna Smith has indicated her intention to potentially become a candidate at the upcoming general elections which are due in the next few months.
Her position came through a proxy in the form of her husband and former Premier Dr D Orlando Smith, who appeared on the Talking Points radio show yesterday, February 7.
Although the former First Lady has not yet made an official announcement about her intention, Dr Smith described his wife as being quite capable of leadership in the territory.
“I know that she’s thinking about it, and she’s quite a capable lady,“ Dr Smith said.
The former Premier said his wife did a lot of work for the government, particularly in establishing the BVI House in London in the United Kingdom (UK) and helping to set up offices in Hong Kong to bolster the territory’s financial services offerings, among other things.
