gapeGaspar Vega will be stepping down as Deputy Prime Minister…..no longer wants to be the Deputy Party Leader of the United Democratic Party and he will not be seeking reelection as Area Representative for Orange Walk North in the next General Elections. Those are the unconfirmed reports coming out of the UDP camp tonight. Reports are that Vega made his decision known to the Prime Minister via a letter sent today. We understand that Vega has not been happy with his party since his portfolio was changed from Minister of Natural Resources and the Environment to Minister of Agriculture. Vegas former portfolio was awarded to Minister Godwin Hulse. It is not known what step the party will take next since Vega was to be endorsed as First Deputy Party Leader in the UDP’s upcoming convention set for March 20.


We understand that in the letter Vega did mention to the P.M that he is committed to working with his successor to ensure a smooth transition and maintained his support for his UDP. It is also uncertain whether Vega will be stripped from his position as Deputy Prime Minister. We will have more on this story in tomorrow’s newscast.
