U.D.P. Cayo Northeast Executive Committee says they not work with Penner

Fermin Magaña

That money and benefits Penner is earning can give him a whole lot of comfort, but it can’t buy any love for the disgraced former Minister of State. The first Mennonite to serve as representative of such high office is shunned for his role in the passport scandal. And now he has become a political pariah, shunned by his closest U.D.P. colleagues in Cayo Northeast. Chairman of the U.D.P. Cayo Northeast Executive Committee, Fermin Magaña, told News Five that the committee has made the decision to excommunicate Penner from their fold and if he does continue to work in the area, he will do so alone.


Fermin Magaña, Chairman, U.D.P. Cayo Northeast Committee

“We met before he went to speak to the prime Minister; that was the last time I spoke to him personally. But he has sent us a message after he spoke to the prime minister and he sent to all the committee members; that he after speaking to the prime minister and the people with whom he need to speak with…Mister Penner has decided to remain in the position that he is as area representative not to resign. He has confirmed it to the members of the executive committee.”



“What has been the reaction of the committee to that?”


Fermin Magaña

“Subsequently after that we met with the committee and the committee has decided to move on in another direction. We are as the name says it, the Cayo Northeast U.D.P. committee and as what the prime minister has asked Mister Penner to resign, we are now moving in the direction that we will not work along with Mister Penner. That was decided on Saturday.”



“The entire committee met and decided this?”

Fermin Magaña

“Most of the committee members; there were not all the committee members present. Some of them did not make it to the meeting. But the general consensus is that we will move on with our work that we will do for our people—providing as much services possible and taking into account the things that are not allowing us to do as much as we could.”



“Mr. Penner has stated that he will not resign; which means that he will then expect to continue working along with the committee.”


Fermin Magaña

“That will not be possible. If you are a member for the Cayo Northeast executive committee of the U.D.P., you will not be able to work with him.”
