Thursday, June 25, 2015. BMG: Information reaching Belize Media Group is that Melvin Hulse has thrown in the towel as standard bearer for Stann Creek West.
Statement by Melvin Hulse in it’s entirely:
“I yesterday informed the UDP Stann Creek West executive committee of my decision to resign as UDP standard-bearer for the constituency. And I today delivered the formal letter of resignation to the UDP secretariat and to the Party Leader.
I wish to make clear that I remain a member of the United Democratic Party, and am completely committed to the party and to the people of Stann Creek West. Indeed, I will work actively with my successor to bring a UDP general election victory in the constituency.
I, of course, greatly regret the circumstances that have caused me to come to my decision. What I said about my Party leader in connection with the resignations from the House of Joseph Mahmud and Ivan Ramos, is utterly untrue.
I freely retract it because I knew it could not be true even when I said it. I was upset and disgruntled at the time, but that should never have caused me to say what I said with no basis at all. So I apologize and move on now to re-establish my personal and party relationship with Dean Barrow and the UDP.”
