PUP discuss Cordel’s role in National Executive 

This morning in Belize City, PUP Leader Johnny Briceño chaired his first meeting of the National Executive since returning to the party’s top post following his January 31 victory in Belmopan. At Independence Hall, the party discussed the plan for the first 100 days of Briceño’s leadership, as explained by party chairman Henry Charles Usher. While he was not there in person, Briceño’s former rival for party leadership, Cordel Hyde, was also part of the discussion. Usher says the party is beginning the process of bringing the Lake Independence area representative on to the National Executive, but there has been no decision on which capacity he will serve in. Usher also denied rumors that Hyde would be named the party’s fifth deputy leader:  The party’s parliamentary caucus will meet on Monday to determine the fate of its three Senators, Lisa Shoman, Patrick Andrews and Anthony Sylvestre. A further report on the party’s finances is also expected.vlcsnap-2016-02-26-09h44m00s654 vlcsnap-2016-02-26-09h43m55s061 vlcsnap-2016-02-26-09h43m43s657
