Will 3-term UDP Mayor be re-elected in San Ignacio and Santa Elena?

Posted: Thursday, February 22, 2024. 2:05 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Three-term Mayor of San Ignacio and Santa Elena enjoys the support of his party, and supporters from across the country being the only UDP Mayor who won in the 2021 Municipal elections along with Councilor Bernadette Fernandez.

But, will the 3-term Mayor be able to hold on to his seat?

Matthew Preston Silva, who won as a PUP Councillor in the last Municipal elections, along with his team mates, is attempting to unseat Trapp in the Twin Towns.

All attention is on the Twin Towns since the UDP is known to hold the fort in Santa Elena Town which is usually the battleground for both political parties.

While Preston-Silva has expressed confidence in unseating Trapp, the Mayor has also expressed that his team is confident for victory on March 6, 2024.

Both Mayoral candidates have strong political backgrounds. Trapp served as a Councilor and later 3 terms as Mayor while Preston-Silva comes from a family of renowned politicians including his grand-uncle Hector and his uncle Daniel Silva.

Political analysts have taken to social media to share their predictions but the voters will ultimately decide on March 6.
