New Slate of Senators for the PUP

John Briceno

Today Briceño made the announcement of new Senators who will replace Lisa Shoman, Patrick Andrews and Anthony Sylvestre in the National Assembly. All three had remained in that position in the wake of the 2015 general elections, with the understanding that whoever emerged as PUP leader after the January thirty-first convention would name his replacements. Various names have been thrown about, but today Briceño made it official.

 

John Briceño, PUP Leader

“We have chosen…we are nominating three persons. We are nominating Eamon Courtenay who is going to be our lead in the Senate. We are also nominating Valerie Woods, a very articulate Belizean woman who has great respect both in the business community and the NGO community especially in tourism. Also the third person we are nominating is Paul Thompson. Paul Thompson is a well known person in Belize in the sporting community. He has been very active especially with young people. I believe these three persons can represent us well and that they are going to do good work in the Senate. We expect a lot from them and we are also going to demand a lot from these three Senators.”
