P.U.P. Suspends Orange Walk East Area Rep Indefinitely Following Indictment

Doctor Mendez is tonight on bail of five thousand dollars and is due back in court on April thirteenth, but it is expected that the matter will be elevated to the Supreme Court. Immediately after his arraignment on criminal charges, the People’s United Party went into high gear. In a release, the P.U.P. states that, “The Party Leader, in accordance with the power vested in him by the National Executive, has with immediate effect removed Hon. Doctor Marco Tulio Mendez from his position as Chairman of the Northern Caucus and has suspended him indefinitely from all other Party related duties, responsibilities, and activities.” The P.U.P. also reiterated that Mendez had already stepped down as standard bearer and that Josue Carballo, the new standard bearer is already working on the constituency. To conclude, the P.U.P. says that, “As a party, our thoughts and prayers are with the alleged victim(s), and with our colleague and friend Doctor Mendez and his family.”
