Twelve applicants are vying for five vacant post in the National Executive of the United Democratic Party. San Pedro’s very own Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr. is taking up the challenge and has applied for the post of second deputy leader against Belize Rural Central representative Beverly Williams.
Minister Heredia has had three terms in Government under his belt and believes he can work with either Faber or Saldivar (both running for Party Leader) to continue his works in his electoral division but most importantly to give back to his party.
The other applicants are Party Leader - Patrick Faber, John Saldivar; for First Deputy Party Leader - Hugo Patt and Tracy Panton; for Second Deputy Party Leader - Manuel Heredia and Beverly Williams; for National Chairman - Michael Peyrefitte, John Castillo and Dr. Carla Barnett; for Vice Chairman - Alberto August, Clifford Peters and Khalid Belisle.
