Will Luke Espat be able to contest to become Cayo Central standard bearer?

Francis Fonseca

But for Luke Espat…his chances seem even slimmer than his political comrade. Several of Espat’s businesses have gone into receivership, including the Port of Belize Limited and Renaissance Towers. But is it his owing Belize Bank some twenty-nine million dollars that stands between him and standard bearer for Cayo Central?


Francis Fonseca, P.U.P. Leader

“Luke Espat is not a candidate; he is an aspirant and we have not even had vetting, we have not had interviews in respect of Cayo Central. There are several people who are aspiring to be the P.U.P. standard bearer in that area. They have to all be interviewed, they have to all be vetted. After that interview and vetting process, then the matter will go to the national executive of the party for a final determination. So that process has to be carried out and I am confident that that process will work to eliminate anybody who does not qualify to run as the standard bearer for the people’s united party in Cayo Central.”



“Could you tell us if the vetting will be done by the end of the year?”


Francis Fonseca

“I think that convention as I recall is set for May of next year. So it is some time. So most likely the vetting will not be done until early in the New Year.”

    francis doesn’t want luke but cant say it like he cant decide on anything else either-do we support refernedum or not? “give me a few years to decide” do we take back Cordel-”time will solve that issue”
    do we sit on our asses until next election-”I dont know let me ask Ralph” leaderless from this leader. Go deh Julius. Luke-Said, Johnny and next Ralph-no change fu change inna di PUP. And only Luke believe his bullsh*¥-best top of the line crap-ugly and leaning-his bridge drop, his houses lean and then drop. You were a nicer guy when you were fat Luke-stop di diet.
