OFFICIAL Opposition United Bermuda Party looks set to announce its challenger for Warwick’s by-election: Devrae Noel-Simmons.

ZBM broke the story today… although unconfirmed by the UBP. The seat for Warwick South-Central is vacant following last month’s resignation by former Premier Ewart Brown.

It’s a seat Dr. Brown comfortably retained by a margin of five to two in the 2007 election. The PLP has selected former Senator Marc Bean to vie for the seat.

UBP Chariman Sen. Jeanne Atherden would not confirm or deny the speculation when ZBM contacted her today.

She would only say that Mr. Simmons had been working with the UBP on the ground for some time now.

On his web site, Mr. Simmons says he is the adopted candidate for the election having joined the party in June of this year.

He is a fitness trainer and once played American football as well as rugby. By profession he is a manager at a local security firm.

An official announcement from the UBP is expected sometime Wednesday.
