Will Patrick Faber Regain His Seat as Leader of the Opposition?

Patrick Faber

Is there a return to his former office as Leader of the Opposition in the days leading up to September Twenty-first?  It’s a question being asked in the wake of reports suggesting that Collet Area Representative Patrick Faber has been endorsed once again by fellow parliamentarian and former Deputy Prime Minister Hugo Patt.  Faber, who was removed as Leader of the Opposition a few months ago, appeared in the media recently.  During his appearance, Faber stated that the Corozal North Area Representative was undecided on whether he should lend support to his leadership in the House of Representatives.  Since Faber’s removal, Mesopotamia Area Representative Shyne Barrow has replaced him as Leader of the Opposition.

With the fortieth anniversary of Belize’s independence less than eight days away, all eyes are on the United Democratic Party which remains in a state of turmoil.  While Barrow is now the parliamentary leader, Faber is the head of the U.D.P.   The Independence Day addresses, however, will be delivered by the Leader of the Opposition and Prime Minister John Briceño, respectively.  In responding to our query earlier today, Chairman Michael Peyrefitte stated via text message that he has no knowledge of the so-called change in parliamentary leadership.  Subsequently, Barrow issued a formal release on an unrelated matter, using the letterhead of the Office of the Leader of the Opposition.
