By Aaron Humes: Former United Democratic Party deputy leader and Deputy Prime Minister Gaspar Vega made his choice for party leader clear on Thursday night in his native Orange Walk Town.
Per a social media post by John Saldivar’s campaign page, Vega and his Orange Walk North delegates endorsed Saldivar, Corozal North’s Hugo Patt, and Beverly Williams for their respective executive posts, as well as Belmopan Mayor Khalid Belisle for Vice Chairman.
Vega was present at the opening of Saldivar’s campaign last November.
In attendance for the endorsement were Pablo Marin from Corozal Bay, Tony Herrera from Corozal Southeast, Denny Grijalva from Orange Walk Central and Gabriel Martinez, Northern Region Coordinator.
Saldivar has claimed the support of no less than 21 fellow representatives in the race to succeed Dean Barrow as party leader and potentially Prime Minister.
As for Vega, he has yet to indicate whether he will contest his seat of Orange Walk North in the coming general election after missing multiple meetings of the House of Representatives in succession.
The convention of 572 delegates will vote on February 9 in Belize City.
