(PLTM) - General elections in the BVI will be held next month, April 24.
In a press release issued this evening, March 15, it was stated that Governor John Rankin has signed a proclamation to pave the way for the 2023 General Elections.
"Additionally, in accordance with section 86 of the Virgin Islands Constitution Order 2007, Governor Rankin issued a proclamation and appointed Monday, April 24 as the date on which the next general election will be held in the Territory," the release said.

The House of Assembly was dissolved on March 10, 2023.

Another Snap Election just like what happened in the Past
The Other Parties are not ready. The time is too short for other Parties to be prepare.
We are not voting for anybody until they get the Roads fixed, all the derelict: Vehicles, Boats, Containers, Trucks and Machineries, clean up from this Territory.
The whole place looks like a garbage heap. Everywhere you go is garbage and derelict items. Side Walks and Road Side have become parking lots and garages. To add to the distress, everywhere you go especially in the Road Town and Purcell area the place smell stink with sewerage and water running here and there.
Furthermore, the Sixth (6) District has been neglected since the 2017 Flood and Hurricanes and it looks like we do not have a representative anymore.
