When not even the PUP wants you, then you must really be up that proverbial creek, heading towards the deep end without a paddle. Unfortunately for Arthur Saldivar he is in that very position. On Tuesday of this week he was given some good news and some bad news. First for the good news. He was informed that the suspension banning him from being a candidate had been lifted. Arthur was then given the bad news. He was informed that he would not be allowed to contest the convention to become the PUP’s Belmopan Standard Bearer for the next General Election. The latter must have been such a shocking blow to Arthur, because he is now talking about challenging the PUP in court over its decision of not allowing him to run.

Now we remember one other such instance where a rejected candidate had taken her party to court for not allowing her to run. However, we are of the opinion that the person in question may not be playing with a full deck. Remember the PARALLEL QUEENS?  Arthur we are sure does not fall in that category. To us suing a Political Party in order to force that party to allow one to run for that party, is like a man suing a woman for her affections, after having proposed marriage to that woman, but is rebuffed by that woman, Arthur may not be one of our favorite persons, but as a fellow human, we must express some sort of sympathy for him. If we had any influence in the PUP we would use that influence, to call on the PUP to allow Ostrich Foot to run.
