(BVI News) Senior Virgin Islands legislator Julian Fraser has offered a prediction that multiple motions of no confidence will be made against members of the recently appointed Virgin Islands Party (VIP) government in the House of Assembly (HOA).
Fraser, who has been a legislator for 24 years, made that predication during a press conference with members of His Majesty’s Loyal Opposition on Thursday.
He was at the time responding to questions from the press about how this large and diverse Opposition team comprising six members will change the dynamics of politics in the BVI. According to Fraser, the last time the Opposition had this many members in the HOA was in 1999.
Fraser, who is Representative of the Third Electoral District, said debates on bills brought before the House of Assembly will be robust this term.
“I can tell you. Whatever the issue is that we are debating, it’s going to be very difficult for the government to move it forward with the kind of Opposition you will see,” Fraser told members of the media on Thursday.
