In the past few days there has been a cascade of uneasy events that have rocked the Virgin Islands and its people. Nonetheless, we must remain resilient and steadfast on our journey.

This procedure will be completed once all the legal requirements are followed, and as such, the Constitution of the Virgin Islands would remain intact.
