By Aaron Humes: The United Democratic Party has unveiled its slate of candidates for the upcoming general election.
There are many familiar names on it, but an unexpected one as well.
Incumbent area representative for Orange Walk North, Gaspar Vega, was introduced and it was indicated by Master of Ceremonies, Kenny Morgan, that he will be running again.
Vega had made noise about standing down and has missed every single meeting of the House of Representatives since June of 2017.
But the man chosen to replace him, Homero Novelo, himself stood down and it appears Vega will be giving it another try.
The former Deputy Prime Minister, deputy party leader and Minister of Natural Resources and Agriculture was stripped of all portfolios in the midst of multiple land scandals and has been on the outside of the party’s inner circle ever since, though still influential financially.
He will be challenged by the People’s United Party’s candidate and long time personal rival, Ramon Cervantes Jr.
