By Benjamin Flowers: The United Democratic Party (UDP) has welcomed John Saldivar back onto its front lines of electoral politics, following an endorsement convention in western Belize.
Today, the UDP issued a congratulatory post for all its regional leaders in the aftermath of their endorsement conventions, with Saldivar listed among them. The party’s regional leaders include Melvin Hewlett for Central, Ivan Williams for the South, Tony Herrera for the North, and John Saldivar for the West.
The regional leaders were seen in a photograph standing with party leader Moses Shyne Barrow, and long-standing party members such as Edmond “Clear the land” Castro.
Saldivar’s return to the frontlines was signaled last year, while the UDP was still under the leadership of Patrick Faber.
Saldivar has continually stressed that, despite allegations of wrongdoing made against him, he has never been found guilty of anything illegal.
At last week’s protest held by the UDP, Saldivar underscored that getting the UDP back in unity was paramount to ensuring that Belize has a strong opposition to represent the people.
“When it comes to standing for the people, the people are there with us because they know that we are the ones who will be there to stand with them; and that is what today is demonstrating, that there is a need for a good, strong Opposition and that work is starting now,” Saldivar said.
The endorsement conventions form a part of a greater move by the UDP to reorganize the party after some very public fallouts with the current leadership and certain members, including Faber, the former party leader, and Albert Division Area Representative Tracy Taegar Panton.
