Attorney Anthony Sylvestre and Standard Bearer Patrick Andrews are new PUP senators

With that issue on the political backburner for the time being, the P.U.P. is concentrating on forging ahead in unity, or as much unity as possible in any political party. So today when P.U.P. leader Francis Fonseca made the official announcement of the new senators, it was with a happy heart and smiles all around. The two new Senators, Anthony Sylvestre and Patrick Andrews, replace Karen Bodden and Collet Montejo, and Fonseca says it is a decision he made to coincide with the second anniversary of this term. At the beginning of the year Fonseca said he would be ratcheting up the agitation and this is expected to do just that.

“Those are our two senators…there are obviously very many good people in the People’s United Party who wanted to and were prepared to work as Senators. I got many good recommendations, a lot of advice, but at the end of the day I had to make the decision and I believe at this point in time these two individuals represent the best opportunity for us as a party to advance the work of the People’s United Party both in the Senate and nationally.”

“I look forward to working with both senators Sylvester and Andrews for us to make a better Belize. It is serious work, it is hard work. I pledge them all my support and I know that I will have their support and their backing in all that we do in the Senate.”

“It is a tremendous opportunity and I do not take it lightly to be appointed by the Party Leader to serve as a senator. It’s a tremendous opportunity and I hope to be able to serve diligently in that new post to the people of Belize and to the vision of our party.”


Anthony Sylvestre

Anthony Sylvestre, New PUP Senator

“Certainly it cannot continue to be business as usual. Business as usual has the country in the state it is in right now. And so myself and the other senators look forward to at every turn where we see wrongdoing, where we see the government taking the country in the wrong direction…to bring this matter to the attention of the nation. The apparatus of the senate is an effective way in which this can be brought.”
