‘Boots’ Still Supporting Michael Peyrefitte for Port

Dean Samuels

The media also asked Minister Martinez about Dean Samuels, the former Belize City Councilor, who is contesting the U.D.P. Convention in the Port Loyola Constituency. Samuels publicly announced his candidacy after Martinez got on national television to publicly endorsed Michael Peyrefitte. Samuels told the media then that his was and will always be Martinez’s first choice. But when we asked Martinez on Thursday, he told the media that his support for Peyrefitte still stands.

“Listen to me, this da no give your word, then take back now, that’s another case. I am still with Michael Peyrefitte, this da no give your word and take back now. No man. Not at all. You could say that I am a man. I don’t take back my word. He said to me he was not running and I took his word for it. So when I jump out of the box now you will see you reverse, well I believe that it is his right. I think he is a good guy but my support stays for Michael Peyrefitte.”



“When he submitted his name, it is you who signed and endorsed as a candidate.”

“What does that have to do with anything? What does that have to do with the price of rice?”



“He has never changed his position on social media. He always said he would run.”

“I don’t have Facebook because my head too small to pack up with a lot of ‘fassness’. He told me in person that he will not be running.”
