As mentioned by Doctor Marco Tulio Mendez there are several persons interested in representing the Peoples United Party and the people of Orange Walk East as Standard Bearer. One of those persons is Councilor Josue Carballo who is also seeking reelection for the upcoming Municipal Elections.


Carballo has been the Chairman of the Orange Walk East PUP Executive Committee for the past four eyars and as such has worked closely with Mendez and the people of Orange Walk East. And from all indications he has the support of the executive to be endorsed as the next Standard Bearer for the P.U.P.


In a meeting held last night members of the executive signed a petition recommending Carballo’s endorsement. If Carballo will have the blessings of the hierarchy of the party is not yet know but what we can tell you is that he is ready to take over the helms of the P.U.P in Orange Walk East.

“We had a meeting last night where we invited all the executive members of town and all the areas, all the villages representatives, local leaders, the chairpersons from the different village councils and we had an open discussion as to the way forward and a lot of them said they were recommending myself as candidate to continue with the work that is currently been done and the kind of leadership of Dr. Marco Tulio Mendez. The executive decided in order for us to have that quickly back on our feet to sign a petition to endorse my candidacy both the executive of the People’s United Party of the Orange Walk East right up to the Orange Walk Town council.”


The next move is to send both petitions to party chairman Henry Usher and Party Leader Francis Fonseca.

“We are going through the normal process sending out these petitions as well to the party chairman and we will be seeking an audience as well with the party leader in seeking our way forward. Beyond the petition that is under way I am also going to be continuing visiting the area and seeking the sider voters’ opinions, their recommendations.”


And if the party leans towards a convention Carballo is prepared to throw his hat in the ring.


Josue Carballo- Councilor


“I have already given my commitment to move forward with the work we are doing but if that be the case we are willing and we are ready we do want of course like is said to have an open and not a divisive convention if that be the case because we do want to make this as quick as possible to the people of the East can also have their leader be it in myself or any other but we have full confidence and we shall proceed.”
