…But What if Sandra Torres Were to Win?

Sandra Torres

And it is likely that a surprise victory by Sandra Torres, currently running third in consecutive polls, wouldn’t be a bad thing either. Torres is the ex-wife of former President Alvaro Cocom, but she has very close ties with Belize.

 

Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“I got to know her when her husband was President, and she was fond of talking about rice and beans, and her closeness with Belize, Her sister of course is married to Gregs Garcia and is the mother of the P.U.P. candidate for general elections in Corozal Bay. I would want to hope that if she does win that again her connection with Belize would mean that there won’t be any slippage in terms of Belize/Guatemala and that in fact there might be more sympathy than somebody else not in her circumstances would be expected to show. But I don’t know. The other side of that coin is that she might feel that she has something to prove because there is the argument that she was born in Belize. I think from what I saw she is a stronger woman than that and I would hope and believe that rather she would recollect not only her former ties to Belize but her current ties to Belize in terms of her sister and her brother-in-law and her nephew and I don’t know if there are nieces.”

 

As we said, latest polls indicate that Torres is still running third behind independent candidate Jimmy Morales and Manuel Baldizon.

    you see what I mean, Barrow is putting his money on Baldizon cause he knows he will get much more than invested.
