Briceño: We Have Not Given Up on San Pedro

As for the situation in San Pedro, Briceño says that contrary to what the prime minister said on Thursday, that the P.U.P. had signed off on the reconciliation sheet, as well as the final statement of poll, that is not the case.  In fact, lawyers are reviewing the outcome in an effort to determine whether there will be a legal challenge.  Until then, Briceño remains circumspect, but optimistic that Belize Rural South will by 2020 become a P.U.P. constituency.

John Briceño, Party Leader, P.U.P.

“There seems to be a lot of uncertainty and we’ve been going through, all night they were working and as I am told we have our lawyers looking at it before we make any big decision because for Andre Perez it’s thirty-eight votes, you know, and this is an area where the area representative, Honorable Heredia, has always boasted that he has under complete lockdown.  Despite all his efforts and all the resources that he put behind his mayor, we’re just talking about thirty-eight votes, and when there seems to be… Votes are not balancing or ballots are not balancing, you know, with how much ballots were issued and how much were actually voted, there seems to be… It is not balancing but we need to take a closer look before we can say anything.  But whatever happens, at the end of the day we are extremely happy to show that in San Pedro we have broken again the back of the U.D.P. and that we are confident that whenever they call the [general] elections, well for the next municipal election that we are going to take it all.  And certainly for the general elections when you look at those thirty-eight votes lost and you include Caye Caulker which usually gives us anywhere between two and three hundred votes, Heredia is toast.”
