Team Vip Requires Thorough Selection: Hon Fraser Says


Chairman of the Virgin Islands Party, Hon. Julian Fraser is aware that the public wishes to meet the candidates that would be contesting the upcoming general elections on the VIP Ticket. However, he announced that the Party is being thorough in its selection process and urged the public to exercise some patience.

During the VIP’s Let’s Talk radio programme that was aired on 11 December, Hon. Fraser said: “I think we are going about it the right way; we are asking the people out there to be patient with us. We are as concerned about this Territory as you are. We are determined as you are to change the government come next election, and we are gonna make sure that whatever we do is to your liking.”

The VIP Chairman assured that he has been listening to suggestions: “I understand the anxiety of people who are asking for the team to be named, but, when you talk to these very people, they have specific recommendations that they want you to follow. The last thing somebody said to me today, ‘I hope you bring in some young people’.”

He added: “If you choose and you choose early and you choose quick, you might end up with a team that doesn’t include those young people. The more you hear the more you learn. And that’s why I am not in this huge rush to put 13 people on the ticket and say here we got a team.”
