Monday, May 4th 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: The People’s United Party (PUP) today endorsed its candidate in Belize Rural North, former soldier and Ports Commissioner Major Lloyd Jones, who served in the Belize Defence Force (BDF) before joining the Port Authority. According to PUP leader Francis Fonseca, the PUP has high hopes for Jones, who has particular experience in national security that the party covets. Fonseca says his many discussions with Jones have given him insight into his particular passion for Belize and its development, at least part of which can be attributed to his family.

Major Jones paid tribute to his predecessor Arthur Saldivar who lost to Castro in the 2012 elections and was disqualified due to legal issues from running again. He said that his run will hopefully open the way for other Belizeans who want to change the political system to step forward. He promised not to be changed by politics, but to change it for the good of all.

According to Jones he has no qualms about facing either incumbent Minister of State Edmond Castro or rival Dwight Tillett. Responding to reports of Castro dismissing him as a “disgruntled UDP” seeking revenge both politically and in the courts, Jones said the only thing that counts is the election day result.

The UDP convention in the area is set for June 7.
