By-election set for Oct. 29

It’s official: Wednesday, October twenty-ninth is the date set for the by-election in Cayo South. Today, Governor General Sir Colville young signed the paperwork naming October fourteenth as Nomination Day and the twenty-ninth as election day. Joaquin Cawich will be running for the People’s United Party, while John Saldivar received the nod as the United Democratic Party standard bearer. They will be competing for the seat formerly held by Cawich’s father, Agripino Cawich, who died on the eighth of August. Thus far, campaigning in this largest of all twenty-nine constituencies has been low key, but we cannot recall a Belizean election–no matter how insignificant–that has stayed that way for long.
