Will PM Barrow Groom Faber for the Top Spot

Patrick Faber

Patrick Faber will be confirmed as Deputy Prime Minister by next week Tuesday, and fully expects that in that position he will be groomed for eventual leadership of the United Democratic Party. John Saldivar has indicated that he will contest in 2020, but Faber seems unconcerned, since he told News Five that he’s grown up in the U.D.P. and there are many persons who feel that he is made for a position of leadership. In fact, says a confident Faber, the Prime Minister is one of those persons.

“The Prime Minister may well be one of those individuals, in fact I am sure he is. He’s left me in the position of acting PM on so many other occasions. He has of course appointed me three-time Minister of Education, so he evidently has a lot of confidence in my abilities. In fact you heard the Prime Minister’s words that I used in a commercial that he said three years ago after the Corozal convention so there’s no doubt in my mind that he believes genuinely that I have the ability to lead our party after he leaves office. They way forward and what it will be like over the next four years – well, the immediate future might be a bit rocky but it is good that we have so much time before we get to that next convention. I look forward to working hard with all of my colleagues so that we can deliver for the people of our Party but that is in the context of the wider Belizean population as well. We have so much important issues that are before us right now.”
