And so while Mendez is faced with a huge hurdle in the courts, we felt compelled to ask him about his future political career. The Orange Walk East Area Representative has gone on record to state that he will not be seeking re-election in the next General Elections and plans on retiring on the advice of his doctor because of chronic ill health, resulting from an old spinal injury. As mentioned, Mendez is still the elected PUP Area Representative in the National Assembly for Orange Walk East and while rumours are that he will resign from the post triggering a bi-election in the Orange Walk East constituency, today he told us he’s not going anywhere…..

“Yes, am still a member, I haven’t resigned and of course I am just going through course of the legal process, I haven’t resigned and I am still representative of the Orange Walk East Area.”

Maria Novelo – Reporter

“The opposition Mr. Elodio Aragon has been pushing for your resignation?”


“Resign for what I mean it is a legal process that is going through and it is there that I am going to proof my innocence.”

After Mendez was charged the P.U.P Executive removed him from his position as Chairman of the Northern Caucus and suspended him indefinitely from all other Party related duties, responsibilities, and activities.
