Saldivar Says He Will See P.U.P. in Court

Arthur Saldivar

In the case of the suspension of the former Belize Rural North standard bearer, Arthur Saldivar remains on probation of two years which prohibits him from applying to contest for the party. That is not likely to faze Saldivar, who hosted an ‘online town hall’ session on social media running nearly two hours to respond. He indicated that he will challenge the decision legally.

 

Arthur Saldivar, Denied Application to Run in Belmopan

“I will be seeking an order of mandamus, because the process that started back on April seventeenth, 2018, has been marred with bias and prejudice. As a result of that, I believe there is a need to have the court look at these things, especially as it relates to the constitution of the P.U.P. As a Belizean and a Belmopanese, this is the seat of Parliament, and if we don’t stand up for democracy in Belmopan, where else in Belize can we expect for democracy to be championed? As a result of this, here is the situation, it is my fear that if I don’t stand, then we are saying to the Belizean public, that those who are the custodians and the trustees of the People’s United Party are not adhering to their constitution, and we cannot be sure that they will adhere to the Constitution of Belize should they be given the mantle of power over the nation. So I have to, by virtue of principle, stand up for the constitutional right that I have as a member of the party, and for my rights as a Belizean, so that no other Belizean and no other member of the P.U.P. can be treated the way I am being treated now, unfairly and with disregard.”
