P.U.P. files another Election Petition

Since the elections on March seventh that ended seventeen to fourteen in favor of the U.D.P., the People’s United Party announced that it would be filing several election petitions. On Wednesday, the P.U.P.’s Martin Galvez filed a petition against Mark King in Lake Independence at the Supreme Court. A petition is also being filed against Albert Representative, Herman Longsworth. The P.U.P. believes that Longsworth has a contract with the government for the fence at the Marion Jones Stadium which was not disclosed before he ran for office. According to the law, all contracts must be declared one month before elections.  There are two additional petitions to be filed in respect of Cayo Central where Collet Montejo lost by seventeen votes and in Cayo Northeast, where Orlando Habet lost by forty-four votes. In both cases, recounts were denied and the P.U.P. claims bribery was also involved. This Friday, a ruling will be made in respect of another petition, which involves Yolanda Schakron’s rejection on nomination day.

    I told you UDP !!!
    I TOLD YOU THAT YOUR GUATEMALANS WILL NOT VOTE FOR UDP !!! WHAT HAPPENED TO THE UDP IN SANTA FAMILIA, CAYO? THEY GOT WHAT THE DUCK GETS !!!
    TAKE THIS AS A GOOD LESSON, WE ALL KNOW FOR SURE THAT UDP LOST THIS ELECTION !!!
    SINCE UDP ILLEGALLY REGISTERED GUATEMALAN VOTERS, WILL UDP ALSO REVOKE OR MAKE THE GUATEMALAN VOTES VOID?
    UDP IS THE GOV, THEY CAN DO ALL THAT.
