Municipal elections are on March 7th. On the radio and television stations at this point, PUP campaign ads can be heard daily; not so with UDP ads at this point. In Belmopan , the only huge campaign posters we have seen hoisted on street corners so far are also those of the PUP. However, while the United Democratic party appears to be confident of another win, they are on the campaign trail working hard. Belmopan area representative John Saldivar was asked today if he is also involved in the municipal elections campaign.
Area Representative John Saldivar
I’m Fully involved in the campaign and as a matter of fact I did not get to sleep last night until about 1:00 a.m. We are very involved .I am very involved directing the campaign in Belmopan and I feel very good about our chances. We have an excellent slate. we have a very charismatic Mayor that has achieved quite a bit in the 3 years that he has been in. The collaboration between himself and myself have produced great benefits for the people of Belmopan and I am confident that the people of Belmopan see that and will reward us on March 7th.
