Screen_Shot_2014-04-28_at_9.14.15_PMAnd turning to the political scene, yesterday the people’s United Party held its convention to elect a Standard Bearer for the Cayo Central constituency at the Santa Elena RC School. Two well-known businessmen contested yesterday’s convention, Dan Silva and Luke Espat.


While much controversy surrounded the convention, at the end of voting a total of 1,933 votes were cast, 1,426 in favor of San Ignacio resident Daniel Silva who emerged victorious since his opponent Luke Espat obtained 487 votes. There were 19 spoilt ballots. We understand that after the convention Luke Espat appealed for unity in the party and pledged his support to the newly elected Standard Bearer of the PUP. Silva will face Rene Montero in the next General Elections.
