Screen_Shot_2015-12-15_at_3.23.43_PMWhen the clock stroke 5:00pm today it marked the deadline for the submission of names for executive posts in the People’s United Party including the Leadership. Up to yesterday evening the only sure name in the race was that of John Briceno who was nominated by eight of the nine constituencies forming the Northern Caucus. Notably though was the fact that Florencio Marin Junior did not endorse Briceno. But we’ll get to that story later.


What we want to tell you first is that on January 31st when the P.U.P holds its National convention, three persons will be contending the Leadership post.

They are Orange Walk Central Area Representative and former Leader John Briceno, Lake I Area Representative Cordel Hyde and outgoing Leader of the Party Francis Fonseca.

Hyde was nominated by the Chairmen of the Lake I, Pickstock, Port Loyola and Albert Committees and the Chairlady of the Cayo Central Committee. According to the Chairmen and chairlady, Hyde is eminently qualified for the position and possesses the right values and principles that will put the party back on a pathway of success.

Today the People's United Party Chairman, Henry Usher, announced the candidates who will be vying for leadership posts in the Party's National Convention to be held on January 31, 2016. Leader: Hon. John Briceño, Hon. Francis Fonseca and Hon. Cordel Hyde. Deputy Leaders: Hon. Florencio Marin Jr., Hon. Jose Mai, Hon. Julius Espat, Hon. Mike Espat, Hon. Rodwell Ferguson and Hon. Kareem Musa.

National Communication Director: Dolores Balderamos Garcia, Anthony Mahler and Emilio Zabaneh. National Campaign Manager: Victor Espat, Legal Advisor: Anthony Sylvestre Jr., Treasurer: Ramon "Monchi" Cervantes and Chairman: Henry C. Usher and Hon. Oscar Requeña.

Senator Lisa Shoman, who it was rumored was thinking of entering the race, stated via the Social Media, minutes before the deadline, that she will not be contesting the post of Party Leader of the People's United Party.
