By BBN Staff: Initial reports from the United Democratic Party (UDP) Deputy Leadership convention held this afternoon at the ITVET campus in Belize City indicates that Patrick Faber has beaten John Saldivar for the party’s number two spot.
Faber reportedly beat Saldivar by 88 votes. The total numbers haven’t been made official as yet but Faber and his supporters have already started celebrating the victory.
Voting began at 9:00 a.m. and ended at 3:00 p.m. Faber, by way of his victory, is now expected to succeed Barrow as the UDP’s party leader once current party leader Dean Barrow retires at the end of his current term in office.
On Friday Faber had predicted the victory, saying he would have been very surprised if he lost the convention. He added that even though it was a closely contested convention, he and Saldivar would maintain a courteous friendship even after the results.
