By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Sunday, February 5, 2023, delegates in Belmopan will have an opportunity to vote for a UDP standard bearer in that constituency.
Four-term Area Representative, John Saldivar will face newcomers, Emil Torres and George Lovell.
UDP Leader, Shyne Barrow has made public his support for Lovell and says that the page should be turned from “significant corruption in John Saldivar to a person with integrity.”
Barrow says that the person with an “unblemished record of service within the BDF, in public service and as CEO is George Lovell.”
In addition, Barrow reminded that the country is watching and the result of that convention can impact the UDP and the country.
“It is time to turn the page and time to say to the country that we heard their cries,” Barrow added.
Barrow says that he has been on the ground in Belmopan and while people appreciate Saldivar for what he has done, they believe it is time for him to retire.
“There are some that feel as strongly as I do and as far as Mr. Lovell unanimously everyone has a tremendous amount of respect and reverence for Mr. Lovell no matter who I talk to, even someone that says you know, I think John should go, but you know because I’ve known him for so long I have to vote for him or those that says listen, I can’t vote for John, he has to go, but maybe they will support another candidate,” Barrow stated.
