Love correspondents were spread across the country monitoring the voting process and reporting on the numbers. In the Belize Rural North, the UDP experienced another loss when the voters went against Edmond Castro and voted in PUP’s Marconi Leal. Castro had served as the Area Representative for three terms after winning the 2008 general elections against Earl Perez. Every year that he won Castro managed to receive over 2,000 votes. 2020, however, saw him lose favor in that area and he only managed to gain 1568 votes. His opponent from the PUP Marconi Leal won by 670 votes. The media caught up with Castro minutes after the defeat.
Castro had served as the Minister of Transport and NEMO during his term in office.
