Preparations underway for recall of Edmund “Clear the Land” Castro

Arthur Saldivar

While Landy Habet is paving the way to recall Elvin Penner, P.U.P. Belize Rural North political officer Arthur Saldivar is not far behind. His target is Edmund ‘Clear the Land’ Castro, who is accused of clearing the way for visas for Chinese nationals. The allegations against Castro are serious, and there are indications that much more trouble is headed his way. Saldivar says that they’re preparing to recall him, and they’re making sure that they get it right.

 

Arthur Saldivar, P.U.P. Belize Rural North Political Officer

“We have a meeting set for Tuesday; the executive committee of the division. We will be incorporating some of those veterans from the Cayo Northeast division who have gone through the process before so that we can have a more efficient exercise this second go around. Certainly the rural north is slated as the next area to be targeted for recall given what has happened with the area rep and he no longer holds the confidence of the people in the area. As a result of that, most of the constituents in the rural north font believe that he can give them the kind of advocacy and representation needed to ensure that they can be given the resources that they deserve in that area.”

“Are you confident that you will be able to get the signatures necessary?”

“Yes, the signatures won’t be a problem. Once the signatures are collected, collecting the signatures is not a problem, but that sixty-nine percent threshold because again we know that the U.D.P. if their history has shown us anything is that they will do anything to throw at the will of the people. And certainly if it means paying their people to stay at home, we can expect that that will be one of the tactics that they will use. But in collecting the signatures, it is a two-prong situation in that we get a chance to go on the ground and hear what the people are saying and at the same time, it is a precursor to the inevitable.”

 

In this instance, the P.U.P. needs a little over fifteen hundred signatures on the petition to recall Edmund Castro. The party plans to get started as early as next week.

    Perform the amputation:

    Recall every elected UDP politician and any PUP politician involved in corruption.

    Then prosecute all government officials, elected or not, that have committed crimes. Prison time for the higher ups and the most egregious criminals. Minor criminals, loose their jobs and their pensions.

    Then start a national inquiry as to how such a government corruption can be prevented in the future. Understand why did the constitution not prevent this mess from happening.

    Then join the United Nations treaty on stopping government corruption; something the PUP and UDP have blocked.

    Edmund ‘Clear the Land’ Castro, who is accused of clearing the way for booty calls for Chinese nationals, has just announced his new DVD, “Belizean Booty Calls, Luv potion #9″.

    Learn the secret scents and the rubs needed to create the oil when making the Flying Squirrel Screech. This master of driving the women, enslaves them with melodic lullabies. His lips sing grunts like the national animal, the mountain cow. Only one women (living in Taiwan) has ever evaded this prowl call. For all other women, play it and salute the flag.

    “if it means paying their people to stay at home”

    what about??
    “if it means paying their people to harass people to stay at home and not sign”

    was there not instances during the last election, they blocked voting stations and ran off voters?
    Of course this was not further investigated, case closed, never happened. UDP wins.
