Briceño Says He’ll Resign if He Loses General Elections

It is said that elections are won on election day and this time, Briceño is the maximum leader of the P.U.P.   Though confident of victory, Briceño’s fate is in the hands of the electorate.  Win or lose government, Briceño says he will continue to serve as area representative for Orange Walk Central—a seat he is sure to win.

“Do you believe that the party at this point is good enough or do you fear that there might be that 2012 repeat where you came close, but not close enough?”

 

John Briceño, Leader of the Opposition

“Well in 2012 remember that was my work. That is the work where I did between 2008 up to October 2011 when I stepped down as leader. So I had done all of the ground work, visiting the villages, the communities, all over the country pointing out to people that we were a better alternative than the U.D.P.  The U.D.P. then quickly called an elections probably like four months after I had stepped down to take advantage of the change of leadership. Despite all of that we came so close. So we are ready. Our party has good people. Fantastic candidates.”

“If you fail, and I saw you because you are the leader of the People’s United Party, will you not only resign from the leadership post or from your division as well?”

 

John Briceño

“I could defiantly tell you that I will step down as the Leader of the People’s United Party. But then whether I would step down as the representative from Orange Walk Central? I would not do that. I would not betray the people of Orange Walk Central. I would stay there and continue to work for them until the end of that term.”
