John Saldivar puts fate in hands of UDP National Party Council

Posted: Wednesday, December 7, 2022. 12:05 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The second-largest deliberative body within the Opposition United Democratic Party (UDP) is set to deliberate the fate of would-be Belmopan standard bearer John Saldivar after he successfully obtained the required signatures to trigger an emergency meeting of the National Party Council (NPC).

According to Channel 7 News, the NPC will meet via Zoom on December 17 to consider, per an internal party notice, “the single item of the Special Committee’s decision to disallow the Candidacy of John Saldivar in the best interest of the Party.”

A seven-member special committee appointed by party leader Moses “Shyne” Barrow reported on Friday, December 4, that it had considered and rejected Saldivar as a candidate in the Belmopan convention, following his designation by the U.S. State Department concerning acts of “significant corruption,” namely bribery and improper use of state assets, charges he denies.

The NPC has 120 members, including those aligned with Saldivar’s “Caucus for Change” which continues to back him. A majority would be needed to reverse the decision of the Special Committee.
