By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The People’s United Party (PUP) and United Democratic Party (UDP) flexed their political muscle today as almost 150 candidates were nominated to contest the 67 municipal seats across the country.

Last Municipal elections, the PUP won all except 2 seats.

The only UDP Mayor that won was San Ignacio and Santa Elena Town Mayor Earl Trapp along with UDP Councilor Bernadette Fernandez.

This time around, Matthew Preston Silva, the grand-nephew of renowned historian and politician Don Hector Silva and the nephew of Former Government Minister Daniel Silva is attempting to unseat Trapp.

Preston-Silva was nominated by Don Hector this morning and he took the opportunity to lobby for the support for Preston-Silva.

The UDP flanked by supporters and UDP flags made their way to the administration building in San Ignacio this afternoon.

Three-term Mayor Earl Trapp and his team are attempting to hold on to the San Ignacio and Santa Elena Town Council.

In addition, there is an ongoing banner fight with political banners addressing messages to each other side by side hang on the streets of San Ignacio and Santa Elena.
