25 Constituencies Were Represented at Patrick Faber’s Leadership Launch

Turning to politics, on Sunday, Deputy Prime Minister Patrick Faber officially launched his bid to lead the ruling United Democratic Party. He is set to go against Belmopan Area Representative John Saldivar for the U.D.P.’s National Party Leadership convention on February ninth. Faber says that at least two thousand supporters of the Party and his bid were present at Sunday’s event.  According to Faber, twenty-five constituencies were represented. The party leader hopeful says that he understands why not all of the five hundred plus delegates have made up their minds as yet.

“We had about twenty five constituencies represented there on the actual floor of the convention itself. So I am very pleased. I was ecstatic about the attendance. I was happy about a very wonderful ceremony. I think it was a great launched. And as I said to the media who interviewed me there on that day is that this is just the beginning. The convention is on February ninth. So it is a kick off so don’t be counting. You worry about the count of February ninth.”

“Sir while you say that twenty five constituencies were represented there it does not mean that the delegates of these constituencies will vote for you in February, What are you doing to advance your campaign because as we asked Mr. Figueroa yesterday, he had not decided.”

“Exactly so because there are many who will tell you. “we will wait, we don’t want to tell you exactly,” in terms of those individuals, ministers and standard bearers and that is understood.”
