P.U.P. to Select Replacement for Joseph Mahmud in Cayo North

Francis Fonseca

Two weeks ago, P.U.P. Cayo North Area Representative Joseph Mahmud threw in the political towel. His resignation came as a surprise to observers, but insiders tell us that the decision was made due to internal wrangling. Still, it’s a done deal for the political newcomer who two years ago staged an upset in Cayo North. The Party has moved on, and today P.U.P. Leader Francis Fonseca told the media that the Party is in the process of selecting a new candidate from the many aspirants who want to fill that seat.

“I have accepted that letter and we have put in place a committee of the Western Caucus that will lead an effort to find a new candidate, a new standard bearer for Cayo North. So that process is underway and I hope that that will be completed by the end of the year, but if not, certainly in early January. I can tell you we’ve had many good people come forward. We’ve had some exciting candidates—both male and female—who are interested and the party, as I said, will pursue a process and our objective is to find the best possible candidate to represent the people of Cayo North. It is a division we won in the last election and we have every confidence that we can retain that seat in the next election. I am happy that Mister Mahmud has made it very clear to me and the party that he will work very hard to keep that seat for the P.U.P. and he will support the new candidate of the party.”

    Can someone please explain to Fonseca and his delinquent colleagues that Cayo north was not won by the PUP but by Joseph Mahmud. No way will they win Cayo North without Joseph Mahmud.
