By Aaron Humes: The United Democratic Party (UDP) turns 48 on Monday, having been formed on September 27, 1973.
A merger of Philip Goldson’s National Independence Party (NIP), Dean Lindo’s People’s Development Movement (PDM), Manuel Esquivel’s Liberal Party, and part of a fourth, Evan X Hyde’s UBAD Party for Freedom, Justice and Equality, the UDP first formed the Government in 1984 and have done so for the majority of Belize’s independent existence.
Currently, the party is in flux, having changed Leaders of the Opposition twice in the last six months and had one of them face recall from members, not to mention internal issues of dissension.
However, party leader Patrick Faber has survived all of that for now and will host a press conference on Monday morning at 10 a.m. to celebrate the party’s anniversary.
Party Vice-chairman Alberto August also announced, “Tune in to WAVE tomorrow for the ceremony, the celebration and to win Fabulous Prizes.
The ceremony begins at 10:00 am but the giveaways begin as early as 7:30 am under the banner: “UDP – Sharing the little we have with as many as we can.”
We’ll have highlights of the press conference on Monday.
