By Breaking Belize News Staff: The United Democratic Party (UDP) is preparing to make party history this weekend with the upcoming standard bearer convention.
For the first time in 39 years, the constituency is preparing to have a standard bearer that is not a member of the Barrow family. Vying for the spot this weekend are Shane D Williams, grassroots activist, and former journalist; and Godwin Haylock, who notably used to work for the current Queen Square Area Representative.
Queen Square has been a UDP stronghold since 1984, with former Prime Minister Dean Barrow as standard bearer and winning the seat in parliament up until the 2020 General Elections when he was succeeded by his sister Denise “Sista B” Barrow, who also won the seat in parliament that year.
The convention takes place at St. John’s Anglican Primary School on Sunday, April 2, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
