Sparks Could Fly – As Patrick Faber Asserts His Leadership & Debating Skills At Friday’s House Of Representatives Meeting
Tuesday, June 29th.
Yesterday afternoon (June 28th.) the shuffle inside the U.D.P and jockeying for power positions in the wake of the unseating of Patrick Faber as ‘Leader of The Opposition’ in the House is a step closer to a new leader of the UDP Party.
Apparently Senator Khalid Belisle will be replaced by former Belize City Mayor Darrell Bradley in the Senate. The move has been interpreted as a strategic effort to replace Partick Faber, since it would be normal that the leader of the party must have a seat in either the House of Rep. or the Senate.
If it occurs, a sort of Juxtapose will be on the UDP side, wherein ‘Jamal Shyne Barrow’ will be leader of the opposition in the House of Rep. but not Leader of the UDP. with Patrick sitting on the bench.
In his press conference from UDP HQ on (Friday June 25th.) the embattled party leader said that we will see who is the real leader/debater of the opposition when the House of Rep. meets on Friday July 2nd.
On July 11 the United Democratic Party will hold a leadership convention at the ‘Birds Isle’ to determine who will be the next party leader. A sure contestant for that post is the current embattled leader Partick J Faber.
