By Aaron Humes: The men who want to be the next leader of the United Democratic Party both took to social media today making their case for Sunday’s vote.
John Saldivar wrote that he hoped delegates would choose “unity, positivity, compassion, thoughtfulness, and continued progress” with his slate, which includes Hugo Patt as first deputy and Beverly Williams as the second deputy.
Saldivar claims, “Seventy-five percent of constituency leaders are with TeamSaldivar. The base of the Party is with its constituency leaders. This makes our Party strong. This makes our Party a formidable force against the PUP. This unity gives our Party the best chance at winning the next General Elections.”
And he mentions attempts to “smear my name and character” and “focus on a propaganda that mixed coincidences with half-truths, lies, circumstantial evidence and no evidence at all.”
But he insisted that his campaign has stayed high and away from similar tactics and extended the hand of reconciliation to his rivals after a victory he feels certain will be his on Sunday.
Faber chose a personal letter style of writing commending delegates for their individual contributions to the party and asking to “elect leaders who put us in the BEST position to win the next general elections. That is possible by electing leaders that are committed to operating in a way that makes UDP supporters and all of Belize proud, happy and steady on the path to development.”
Faber, Tracey Taegar-Panton and Manuel Heredia Jr. are running individually for party leader and deputy party leaders respectively.
The convention begins at 10 a.m. at the Belize Civic Center.
