“Doctor Marco Tulio has been getting medical treatment and he just returned from Guatemala a few days ago his doctors have been given him some advice and I have discussed with him but a final determination on whether or not he will be fit to continue to run, to continue to be the standard bearer for the People’s United Party, you know he is the area representative for the Orange Walk East and he will serve out his term but whether or not he will be fit and able to run is a matter that will be determined by his doctors.”

Fonseca says no final decision has been made but that they must be prepared for anything. However nothing will be done unless Mendez indicates he cannot run a campaign again.
