Darrell Bradley Reflects on Loss in Caribbean Shores

Darrell Bradley

The Prime Minister has said that in all the results countrywide, he was most surprised by the results in Caribbean Shores, where Darrell Bradley was defeated by Kareem Musa. It’s certainly a heartbreaker for Bradley who was at the press briefing this morning. He told us that while he never contemplated losing, any contemplation he does at this point will be as Mayor of Belize City.

“It was of course something that you put a lot of effort into…you think that you are going to prevail, and if you don’t prevail it is something that affects you. I want to first of all congratulate Kareem for a splendid and well-fought race. I share the Prime Minister’s sentiment that there was a great degree of political maturity in all the camps. In many cases his tent was right next to mine and there was a peaceful outpouring yesterday in terms of exercising the democratic process and I want to congratulate his family and his team. I also want to express my gratitude to my team as well. I think that we pushed hard in the area. Our campaign was on the ground for about six months, and we did the work. In the end I think it was about campaign machinery, and his machinery was better.”

“It was mentioned earlier that the flood may have impacted elections in Belize City one way or the other. Do you feel that you may have suffered a little because of the flood?”

“Well I think that there’s a myriad of issues. I haven’t really sat back to reflect in relation to what were our flaws and weakness. But I think that there was a myriad of reasons. I can’t really say if the flood made an impact, but I think there were several factors.”

“What’s next for Darrell Bradley? The last time we spoke you were not up to contemplating a loss. You have lost. What’s next? Do you go back to City Hall?”

“Well I’m still Mayor. I intend to go back there this afternoon. I didn’t go this morning because I needed some rest, and also because of this press briefing. But again we are going to continue the work. Darrell Bradley remains Darrell Bradley. I am a Belizean, I love my country and I will continue to work for its development.”

    Moron-dont want advice and don’t want to listen to anyone-sabelotodo. He fought to get into Caribbean shore to fall flat on face. Thought he doesn’t need anyone who has been there before he was born. What does this say about people who are willing to vote for a MUSA instead of you. Calm down a bit and jump, not fall, off your high horse. Maybe next time like Mark King.

    Belizeans don’t like people that run down power. This man fought out his own party member out of the seat to have another trophy on the wall.
