Screen_Shot_2016-03-16_at_8.32.10_PMAt the top of the newscast you heard Minister of Education Patrick Faber expand on his interest for the position of First Deputy Leader of the UDP. With Honorable Gaspar Vega out of the way the UDP is looking at electing a new First Deputy Leader. But what prompted Vega to retire from politics? Today Faber told us that while Vegas retirement was discussed in Cabinet on Tuesday, the three term Area Representative did not go into much detail about the decision he took.

“It was just a matter of him, well firstly the Prime Minister stating the position and of course telling us how we would move forward and then of course Mr. Vega had a chance to address the Cabinet and told us of his position and didn’t get too much into the details other than he thought as I said before that he should give the position to a person who of course better be able to lead the party since he would be departing and that is about what happened some of us even me I would say but other who enjoyed a good working relationship with him at the time he was Deputy Leader and of course Deputy Prime Minister shared their word for him to continue in the Cabinet I even though you know that our relationship was not always the best I shared words of gratitude for him for all what I learnt in the process and certainly anytime that he served as my Deputy Leader and Deputy Party Leader sometimes I would say I don’t like things but that is way it is and I am a very respectful member of my party and of the Government of Belize which Mr. Vega was both Deputy Leader for.”
