According to Saldivar’s committee, Vega joins 12 other Cabinet colleagues and a total of approximately 20 standard-bearers countrywide in their support for Saldivar to become the UDP’s next Deputy Party Leader.
Over the last few weeks, Saldivar and his opponent Patrick faber have been trying to garner the support of prominent UDP figures and party delegates.
