By Aaron Humes: Former Mayor of Belize City and President of the Senate Darrell Bradley is now out of the July 12 leadership convention for the United Democratic Party (UDP), according to multiple reports.
The remaining participants are de facto incumbent John Saldivar, rival Patrick Faber and Minister of Foreign Affairs Wilfred Elrington.
The convention is set for Sunday, July 12 from 9 a.m. at the ITVET Compound, Freetown Road, Belize City.
According to our sources, only the 570 delegates, candidates, election officials and scrutineers will be allowed on the compound. There is no indication of what will be the provisions for press coverage.
Voting is expected to start at 10 a.m. and conclude at 1 p.m., immediately followed by counting and announcement of results. There will be no congregating allowed and social distancing rules apply.
The winner leads the U.D.P. into upcoming general elections, though Prime Minister Dean Barrow has yet to even hint at when those will be held.
