A total of sixty-four thousand nine hundred and fifty-five persons went to the polls yesterday which represents fifty-seven percent of the registered voters.  The UDP has been controlling the Belize City Council for over ten years; however, in yesterday’s Municipal Election the UDP lost control of the Belize City Council. Love news spoke with UDP’s mayoral candidate Dion Leslie whose hopes were dashed after he lost to Bernard Wagner. Today, Love news asked Leslie what may have led to his defeat.

Dion Leslie – UDP’s Mayoral Candidate

“We put in the work we had our machinery there. I personally believe that playing on the national issues did hurt us somewhat because at no time did the PUP stick to the issues at hand in reference to the city council or the mandate of the city council so that is my personal belief, but with that said it is the will of the people. They have spoken and shown that they want change. From here we just move, collect ourselves as a party and as a group and see where we go from here.”
