Are the Tides Turning in Faber’s Favor?

Patrick Faber

Going back to Sunday’s leadership convention, a number of U.D.P. area representatives have also shifted their support from John Saldivar to Patrick Faber, including Cayo Central’s Rene Montero and Erwin Contreras.  While Faber was defeated earlier this year by a margin of well over a hundred votes, he says that a minimum of sixty votes is needed to turn the tides this time around.

“If you check the statistics you will see that if we want to make some kind of judgment based on the number of constituencies alone and you average fifteen delegates per constituency, that’s only four constituencies that you need and I can name you right off, if you insist, four of those constituency leaders who have said we are going to go all out now with Faber.”



“I’d love if you name them, sir.”

“You won’t mention Erwin Contreras?”


Patrick Faber

“You have now mentioned him and how dehn seh it, if you seh wahn name and I whistle.  If I wasn’t talking so much and mi mouth neva dry I mih wahn whistle.  But yes, I believe he is with us and there are some of the standard bearers who of course are now with us.  So that what you just painted as something very difficult to do or very difficult to see in light of the numbers isn’t very difficult at all.”
