cayo north.jpg - 100.08 KbJune 8 has been set as the date during which the United Democratic Party will be holding a convention to identify a new Standard Bearer for the Cayo North East constituency. Party Chairman, Alberto August, says that all preparations are ready for that convention to take place. He explains that there are three candidates who are seeking the position.

Those persons are, current mayor of San Ignacio and Santa Elena, John August; well known UDP stalwarts Eduardo Juan and Anthony McNab. The convention has become necessary after Prime Minister Dean Barrow, in October of 2013 invited Hon. Elvin Penner to resign from the United Democratic Party as he would no longer be able to represent the people of Cayo North East as a member of the U.D.P. Prime Minister Barrow asked for the resignation after irregularities involving Hon. Penner in the immigration department came to his attention.

While the opposition PUP is making a whole lot of racket over the Elvin Penner issue using Cola as its main instrument, the United Democratic Party has long moved on. The convention will secure UDP representation in the constituency. Unlike the manner in which the PUP conducts business, the UDP is not afraid to point out wrong doing and in fact takes swift and decisive action whenever these are discovered.
