Briceño reacts to poll; says P.U.P. will bounce back

And while he was in front of the microphone we couldn’t help but ask the Deputy Leader of the People’s United Party his reaction to the latest public opinion poll by SPEAR.

Johnny Briceño
?Certainly, the polls we need to give it serious consideration. We cannot dismiss it. What is important for us as a party to look at is that there is almost fifty percent of the electorate has not really decided which way they want to go. Some are talking about looking at the option of a third party and others are saying they have no opinion at this time. I believe that our party by the time we come to election in an year time or whenever the prime minister decides to call the elections that we will be able to convince the people that the People?s United Party continues to be the only viable option that the people have.?

While the poll found the ruling P.U.P. trailing far behind the opposition U.D.P. across the nation, in Briceño?s home territory of Orange Walk the two parties were running neck and neck.
