Faber Says He’s Laying the Groundwork for Transition in 2020

Patrick Faber

The campaign between Faber and his opponent John Saldivar has been rather intense with blows coming from both sides. Inside the Faber camp, it is believed that he will win by a margin of less than fifty votes, while Saldivar is claiming a landslide. Faber says that he is simply trying to lay down the necessary groundwork to succeed Party Leader Dean Barrow come January 2020.

“That is how a campaign goes.  I don’t know that any kind of race for leadership, in this case the first deputy leadership could be mild.  This is a very serious race that, as you know, could possibly have great leanings on determining who will be the next leader of the party after our beloved party leader the Right Honorable Dean Barrow departs.  He has indicated that he will demit office in 2020, in January, so it has to be seen as a kind of preliminary show at best for the leadership of the party and probably that is why there is this kind of intensity, if you will, for this campaign.  On my part I do see it as that and I want to start the work of making sure that this party is successful not only in 2020 but beyond and so it gives me an opportunity now to start building those relationships of becoming even further engaged in the work of the party and I’ll tell you that those minor chances of me not winning come to fruition I will continue to do the kind of work that I have always done to serve the members of my party and to make sure that this party is victorious.”
