Ferguson is PUP candidate in Stann Creek West

Story Picture
On the local political scene, members of the People’s United Party gathered Sunday in the village of Silk Grass to select a candidate for the Stann Creek West constituency. That spot was created by the decision of current representative Henry Canton not to seek re-election. When the ballots were tallied, Rodwell Ferguson emerged victorious in a hotly contested race. Ferguson garnered four hundred and nine votes, Ernesto Saqui two hundred and eighty-two, Elizabeth Zabaneh two hundred and seventy-four, and Gaspar Martinez came in with two hundred and thirty-two. Ferguson will face off in next year’s general election against U.D.P. candidate Duncan McPherson.
