Oscar Mira wins PUP convention in Belmopan

Posted: Monday, August 27, 2018. 1:25 am CST.

BBN Staff: Retired military officer, Oscar Mira, is the People’s United Party (PUP) standard bearer in Belmopan.

At today’s convention in Belmopan Comprehensive High School, he was able to secure 653 of 940 votes.

In second place was Michelle Rodriguez, the wife of former Stann Creek West Area Representative, Melvin Hulse.

She secured 171 votes.

And finally, in third place was Wiezsman Pat. The former public officer grabbed 94 votes.

There were a total of 22 spoilt ballots.

After the results were revealed, Mira was sworn in as the PUP’s candidate for the next election.

This convention has been dubbed one of the most controversial for the party, because of rejected candidate, Arthur Saldivar.

Saldivar, twice denied by the party’s vetting committee, had filed a legal challenge against the party.

However, on Friday the Supreme Court dismissed his claim.
