What’s Next for Corozal Bay?

The unfortunate passing of Corozal Bay Area Representative David ‘Dido’ Vega before he was able to get a chance to deliver on the promises made to his constituents ahead of the recent general elections, will inevitably trigger a bye-election in that division.  Up until Vega’s victory at the polls last month, Corozal Bay had been somewhat of a stronghold for the United Democratic Party under former Area Representative Pablo Marin.  Since his defeat on November eleventh, Marin has retired from political life.  While a date for another round of campaigning and subsequent election in that constituency is a distance away, we asked Prime Minister Briceño to comment on the way forward for that electoral district.


Prime Minister John Briceño

“What will have to happen is that there will have to be a bye-election.  When?  I don’t know, I have to sit down and see what the law calls for and the time and then I guess both parties will have to go through their convention period to be able to select a candidate.  But I wish not to speak too much about that, Honorable Vega just died and I think we need to honor him for what he has done.  He was an exemplary teacher and he reached out to a lot of young people.  He was always concerned and wanted to do things for his community.”
