CEO Osmond Martinez Resigns from Ministry of Economic Development; Carlos Pol Appointed Interim CEO

Chief Executive Officer Osmond Martinez had taken leave from the Ministry of Economic Development on May 10 to campaign in Toledo East.  Latest information to our newsroom is that he has now resigned from the post, and Carlos Pol has been named as the interim CEO.  Martinez is on the last leg of his standard bearer campaign for a convention slated for Sunday, June 9.  Initial information to our newsroom says Martinez would have waited for the results of the PUP convention before either resigning or returning to his post.  The former CEO is now either confident of a win or has devised a new Plan B.  Our newsroom tried reaching out to him today but our calls went unanswered.  One standard bearer in the south who has chosen to sit this convention out is Stann Creek West’s Rodwell Ferguson.  As the Deputy Leader of the Southern Caucus, Ferguson explained his reason for neutrality.

The PUP Standard Bearer convention in Toledo East is set for June 9 where Nicanor Requena, Melhem Espat and Dr Osmond Martinez will be competing to replace the late Mike Espat.  Whichever candidate is elected will then have to go into a bi-election to become the duly elected Area Representative.  Our news team will be south to provide coverage.
