Penner a U.D.P. Again? DPM Faber Says Chances Slim to None

Patrick Faber

There are reports that disgraced former Immigration Minister, Elvin Penner, aspires to return to party politics.  But his involvement in the Won Hong Kim scandal and the corruption at the Immigration Department, while he was there, remains etched in the minds of most Belizeans.  But are his days as a politician for the U.D.P., a thing of the past? The Deputy Prime Minister Patrick Faber weighed in today when asked if Penner could return to the fold of the party.


Patrick Faber, Deputy Party Leader, U.D.P.

“It is a matter for our party’s nomination committee to decide whether Mister Penner will be allowed back as a candidate for our party. I suspect that his chances will be very, very slim. And I will tell you that I certainly don’t support him running as a candidate for our party again. But that is not my sole decision to make.”
