U.D.P. Emergency Meeting Called over Faber Leadership

It was rumored from last week that there would be a challenge to Patrick Faber’s leadership of the United Democratic Party.  This evening, Moses “Shyne” Barrow, the U.D.P. area representative for Mesopotamia, appears to be making a move.  Via social media, Barrow announced an emergency meeting is being convened of the National Party Council.  He says that “Patrick Faber does not enjoy the confidence of the majority of Opposition Members of the House.” He seems to be offering as a replacement, Tracy Taegar Panton of the Albert Division, who Barrow claims does enjoy the confidence of the majority of the Opposition Members of the House.  Barrow says the emergency meeting will take place before they “proceed to write to the Governor General. There are, of course, only five elected members of the House, so it would not take much to conduct a no-confidence vote against Faber.  Faber was at the center of a scandal last week when a video was leaked which captured him at the home of his two-year-old daughter’s mother. He is seen running off camera and then there is a loud verbal altercation and slamming door.  Last week at the Senate Meeting in Belmopan, the U.D.P. Chairman Michael Peyrefitte defended Faber’s leadership saying he remains the leader of the party and that any “mischief makers” should be ignored.
