Castro Confident That He Can Beat Lloyd Jones in Rural North

Edmond Castro

If Castro defeats Tillett at convention, as he says he surely will, his next challenge will come from the P.U.P.’s Lloyd Jones, who recently declared his candidacy in that area. But Castro told us today that with his party and Petrocaribe in his corner, only a fool would test him.


Edmond Castro, Area Rep., Belize Rural North

“He’s my friend. I would personally like to see him come and test the waters. I can hug him up and beat him in the next general elections. I noh have no problem with that. I will still say he’s my friend. He can say what he wants…slander me, I noh have no slander to slander him. But I will beat him. And if they throw in back Arthur I will beat him too. When my Party was against me leading up into the 2008 elections I defeated my opponent in the convention handsomely, won the election…all sorts of thing they jam the Rastaman with…ih win ih election comfortable…increasing the margin. And now what you think? I am getting the support from my Prime Minister and all my Cabinet colleagues…man da who soh fool fu wah come test? If when my own Party mi deh against me I win and win big…they would be a fool to try and test me now when we are producing more work in the constituency, making people happy. Petrocaribe is rolling out.”
