Friday, October 9th 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: Prime Minister Dean Barrow is confident of a UDP victory in the upcoming general elections, but nowhere apparently more so than in Corozal Bay and Pickstock, the homes of two of his under-fire Ministers, Pablo Marin and Wilfred Elrington.
Both men have won two terms and are seeking a third.
Barrow told reporters that while “very unfortunate” the rat incident is not something that he sees doing any harm to Marin’s chances in Corozal Bay.
BMG’s poll results seem to bear that out but the results are close. Marin edged out rival Gregorio “Papas” Garcia by just 16 votes.
Again, the polls of voters seems to have him right. Elrington is favored by 58% to 40% over PUP rival Dr. Francis Smith, with BPP candidate Ian Cacho (as of polling) well behind. Cacho has now been replaced by Patrick Rogers, the BPP leader.
