Fonseca Remains Optimistic About Municipal Elections

Francis Fonseca

While the Cayo North bye-election is being used as a barometer to measure the parties’ respective abilities to mobilize supporters to the polls come March, Fonseca admits that the existing resources will need to distributed equitably in order for the P.U.P. to mount a massive campaign against the ruling party.  It was a decision, Fonseca says, he was faced with leading up to Monday’s elections.

 

Francis Fonseca, Party Leader, P.U.P.

“We have very good candidates, we have very good teams, we have good support structures in place.  Yes we have to find more resources to support those candidates but I am absolutely satisfied that we will have the adequate resources that we need to put up a very, very effective fight in all nine municipalities and I expect the PUP to do very well in those municipal elections.  I’m not one to make predictions but I expect us to do very well in many of these municipalities because of that.  We have excellent candidates, excellent teams, good support structure, a good message and we have to find the resources to support those candidates and their organizational structure and that is being done.  That’s one of the things, I was very honest with you all, one of the things I had to weigh and balance in this Cayo North elections, you know, I have resources available for these nine municipalities.  That’s one of the things you have to weigh and balance as a leader and that was my decision personally, I could only spend so much in Cayo North because I have these other elections coming up and that is the truth and I take responsibility for that.  But as I said, at the end of the day I am absolutely confident that we will have the adequate resources necessary to wage a very fierce and competitive battle in the municipal elections.”
