Faber Comments on Saldivar’s U.S. Designation

John Saldivar

Faber also gave his take on the latest dilemma that his U.D.P. colleague and intra-party rival John Saldivar has found himself in with the U.S. Department of State’s designation. Faber says Saldivar will have an uphill battle eluding the perception of corruption that has stained his image. He further noted that the U.D.P. must also rid itself of such an image. Here is how he puts it.

Patrick Faber, Area Representative, Collet

“I think that where we see very clearly that there is that perception of corruption. The U.S. Government knows well in my view, I think one U.S news media outlet went further than what the US release had said and went very specific on some things. That made you understand it is not something targeted against Mr. Saldivar alone here, that is a part of a bigger effort of the US. You saw other people involved with Lev Dermen being ostracized in different that anybody connected to that case the US feels they have to be dealt with and so just happens that Mr. Saldivar is here and he is a foreign politician and that is the way they can ostracize or punish him for what they believe was his role in scamming the taxes of the US Government.”



“It does believe that Saldivar can get significant support if he was able to get signatures to call an emergency NPC. If in fact he gets the support from them to overturn the special committee’s decision, what would you think of the UDP?”


Patrick Faber

“What everybody would think, that people have the perception that Mr. Saldivar is severely corrupt. If he is able to get the vote to go his way whenever the meeting is, it will say about the U.D.P. that even though you tried with the special committee that you arr weak and not serious about eradicating corruption or winning the next election. That is ultimately what matter here you know. Yes, the party could do what it wants, in a virtual NPC select Mr. Saldivar to go back, a lot of these failed candidates who have the same perception nationally, or that they are genuinely weak as candidates. The party could force those persons on the electorate all we want. Ultimately, we are not going to win. We have to decide what we want. Do we want to put forward our best foot and have people believe we are serious or have people believe we are a joke and the laughing stock out there.”
