While the numbers were not as impressive as other conventions held across the country, it was not less a sweet victory for Belize City Councilor Roger Espejo who has been holding on to the constituency as caretaker for the past two years.

At the end of polling at the Holy Redeemer Parish Hall, Roger Espejo had received 268 votes, his competitor, William Schnarr received 190 votes and 15 ballots were spoilt. There were a total of 475 persons who cast their ballots.

After taking the Oath of Allegiance to the UDP, Espejo addressed the supporters stating that he was grateful for the turnout of people. They came out because they want a change and want to move forward, he declared. And that was what will be done now, move forward to the next general elections.
