One of the areas in Belize City that the People’s United Party managed to take a hold of is Port Loyola. This is traditionally a strong hold for the UDP and is the constituency of UDP Minister Anthony ‘Boots” Martinez. Minister Martinez has been embroiled in allegations of corruption made against him before the elections. Martinez who has stated that he will no longer run as a representative, was encouraged by the Prime Minister to stick with that decision.
The official figures for Belize City have yet to be released.
