The energy of all the UDP supporters was evident across the country where, by measure of numbers, easily outdid each and every one of the PUP slates seeking office. The UDP election machinery is now in full gear and the nomination day proved that in each and every municipality the party is ready for the elections which is 4 weeks away.

In Belize City, at least two thousand party supporters came out from early in front of the headquarters on Youth for the Future Drive where the contagious rhythms of party songs, both new and vintage, blared out from earlier on in the morning. As soon as the clock struck 1 the motorcade was off making its way down Vernon Street, Central American Boulevard culminating at the Charles Bartlett Hyde building where the 10 councilor candidates along with Mayoral candidate Darrell Bradley were nominated.  

Speaking to UDP Party leader, Hon. Dean Barrow, he expressed great satisfaction at the turnout of support and explained that with such a showing he was certain that the UDP would clearly take the victory on March 4. The numbers in Belize city clearly outdid the PUP who at its peak had some 300 supporters.

No one could convince their party leader of this however, in some state of delusion, he somehow converted 200 supporters into 2000 and convinced of this he made the assertion to anyone who would hear. What Fonseca needed to do was simply turn around and realize that he was sipping on some cool aid that simply was making him see 10 persons for everyone that was present.

And his disappointing showing in Belize city was reflected in each and every other of the municipalities in San Ignacio/Santa Elena for example there were more horses participating in the nomination day parade for the PUP than were people.

If the nomination day is any indication, the United Democratic Party, will have a clean sweep of all municipalities. The energy is now in the air and voters are now simply ready to go to the polls to endorse the work of the UDP as this party continues to transform Belize.
