Will P.U.P. Force Recall of Gaspar Vega in Orange Walk North?

Gaspar Vega

What does the resignation of former DPM Gaspar Vega mean for politics in the north? It is considered a blow for the U.D.P., but others see it as a gain for the P.U.P.  According to Briceño, while he doesn’t relish in Vega’s misfortunes, he thinks his party will benefit from his absence.

 

John Briceño, P.U.P. Leader

“I do not relish the misfortunes that Honourable Gaspar Vega is going through. He has family. He has his children and I know they are going through a difficult time. But, politically, yes, we are going to benefit from it because it has weakened considerably the U.D.P. in the north. But if evidence is there that the Minister made some deliberate decisions, some wrong decisions deliberately, then like everybody else like every other citizen he must be held accountable for his actions and his decisions.”

Reporter

“Sir, do you believe it was enough for him to resign as minister and not calling him to resign as the area rep for Orange Walk North?”

 

John Briceño

“Well, I think that is a decision for the people of Orange Walk North to do. This very same government has put in a mechanism where representatives can be recalled. And if the people in Orange Walk North believe that Mr. Vega should no longer represent them, then I think they should take any action they think necessary to have a recall in Orange Walk North.”

    Politics is all a game for these people. In fact, the Vegas and the Briceños are already family, having intermarriage. So the worst that can happen between them are slaps with silk gloves.
