With the United Democratic Party having endorsed persons for four of the five seats on the party’s executive, plans are being made by the Secretariat for a convention to fill the seat of the First Deputy Leader which was recently vacated by Gaspar Vega.  Two persons who have expressed interest in filling that very crucial seat are Patrick Faber and John Saldivar.

Love News spoke with Saldivar and Faber yesterday in Dangriga and asked them to speak on the grounds that they will be campaigning on in the upcoming convention.

Saldivar has developed a reputation in not being readily accessible to the media for interviews or comments on issues, Love News asked him he believes that weakness will hamper his campaign.

As it relates to internal politics and campaigning, the convention will require the taking of sides when it comes to voting.  Love News asked both aspiring candidates and the UDP Party Leader, Dean Barrow, if they feel that the event will create a division in the UDP.’
