What Does the Leader of the Opposition Think About U.D.P. Scandal?

Francis Fonseca

Of course, the P.U.P. isn’t at all concerned about legal repercussions at this point. The recording of Hulse has fallen like political manna from the sky, and to them it is confirmation of what the Party has been saying all along. Both P.U.P. Leader Francis Fonseca and Dangriga candidate Anthony Sabal believe that for the U.D.P., there will be serious repercussions coming out of that recording straight from the proverbial belly of the beast.


Francis Fonseca, P.U.P. Leader

“All I will say about that—because today is about the future, today is about Anthony Sabal—all I will say about that tape is that I think it is an absolute reflection of where the U.D.P. is today. It is all about money; it is not about governance, it is not about the country; it is all about money. That I think is an indictment coming from one of their very own standard bearers. I think it reflects very poorly on them and I think the Belizean people will have to form their own conclusions when they hear the complete transcript of that tape. I know they heard a few snippets today, but there is a lot more to it and I think the Belizean people will get a very clear idea. Those who don’t already will get a very clear idea and understanding of what we are dealing with when it comes to this United Democratic Party today in 2015.”

“Leading up to the bye-election—good or bad—the recording of Melvin Hulse, as it regards the chances of the P.U.P.?”


Francis Fonseca

“I think everybody will have to make up his own mind. But I think any reasonable, rational person who hears the recording I think will understand that it reflects very poorly on the U.D.P.  That I think is the resounding message from the recording. This is what the U.D.P. represents, this is what they are about; so I think in that regard this is good for the P.U.P. here in Dangriga and here in the south.”

Anthony Sabal, P.U.P. Standard Bearer, Dangriga

“There is a difference when you suspect that payment was made. There is a different when you suspect that the masters of the game have been playing game with the people. But it is different for everybody—not for us, but more so for them—when there is proof that on your side, you have messed up. We are not playing game with the people nor the people’s money. How else can we forget that political parties are there to government after winning the election rather than still playing party politics throughout your term as the government.”


Mike Rudon

“Have you been able to and will you continue to be able to attract the supporters of Mister Ramos?”


Anthony Sabal

“Ýou know the phrase in Dangriga, we are all friends of TV Ramos and there will be more to step up and as the supporters have said, they know me and they will support me. And as Mister Ramos himself has said, he will also support me.”
