Darrell Bradley, a Future Prime Minister of Belize?

Darrell Bradley

While Bradley did not comment on the leadership race between John Saldivar and Patrick Faber, we asked if he too would aspire to be the U.D.P. leader or prime minister of the country, whenever he decides to re-enter into active politics. Given his track record at City Hall and the political power that comes with the highest elected office as Prime Minister, Bradley feels that he would be able to do more for the country.

“Someday in the future, you will see my name on a ballot again.”

 

Duane Moody

“…and possibly the next prime minister of the country?”

 

Darrell Bradley

“Well I wouldn’t say that. I mean like I think that’s kind of…”

 

Duane Moody

“That’s an aspiration…”

 

Darrell Bradley

“It’s always an aspiration. I think that when somebody goes up for something—and I have always been that kind of persons—I think that if you want to make serious change in the country, you have to make it at the top. I was at City Hall and there were a lot of plans that we got done, but there were lot more things that I wanted to get done. And I saw that you had resistance, because you really need that political power at the highest level to make the kind of serious change that I think the country practically needs. And if I say I would wanna run for an elected office, clearly one who is ambitious would want to run for the highest elected office because you think that you can make a contribution in that way to the nation. It is not necessarily that I would say that I would want to be prime minister for my own self.  I would want to be prime minister because I feel that I could be of service to the country and I could contribute something similarly to what I did at City Hall, but with more influence and more ability to get things done.”
