UDP Rally held in San Pedro prior to General Elections
Wednesday, October 14th, 2015
The United Democratic Party (UDP) held its pre-election rally over the weekend in San Pedro. The event took place on the night of Saturday, October 10th at the Central Park. The party showed its strength by bringing some of their current leaders to the event.
A large crowd gathered at the park, eager to listen to the different speakers of the event, including the UDP candidates contesting the November 4th General Elections, Area Representative Honorable Manuel Heredia Jr., and Belize City Mayor Darell Bradley. “This is a government that is working for the people, especially for the neediest ones. We are working with education as well by helping many students from low income families and making sure that our young people, the future of the country, get their lots,” Heredia remarked.
A very notable promise was the completion of the northern road and the official transformation of Basil Jones airstrip into an International Airport. Heredia indicated that at first the airport will serve as a facility for private flights, accommodating celebrities and investors.
The political celebration went into the wee hours of the night with the music of Super Furia Band.
