The UDP hit the ground running on a campaign to safeguard their majority margin in the House, following the PUP’s pursuit to recall Elvin Penner. This weekend, our Cayo correspondent Kent Pandy, caught up with the Prime Minister in the Cayo Northeast Constituency, where he told us their efforts is on a much larger scale than Mr Penner.
“I’ve made it plain that while, right at this time the exercise certainly been pushed by the opposition, but I have made clear that for us, this is not principally about Elvin Penner. This is about the United Democratic Party and wanting to retain the seat. Rallies continue. The efforts to motivate our people continue and the effort to send the message continues. So, all that underscores the fact, that this is bigger than Elvin Penner. This is about the United Democratic Party and the National Government of this country”.
