This evening in a statement via text message, Khalid Belisle told Love News, quote, “The Leader of the Opposition has decided that it is in the best interest of the United Democratic Party that Darrell Bradley serve as one of its Senators at this time and has advised Her Excellency as such. I thank Hon. Patrick Faber for having entrusted the post to me and wish Senator Bradley the best in his new role.” End of quote. As we noted, Belisle was appointed by Patrick Faber when he was the opposition leader earlier this month. Speaking on this matter on The Morning Show today was Faber, who refers to the situation as unfortunate.
Love News communicated with the Leader of the Opposition this morning who commented, quote, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Senator Khalid Belisle for his service in the Senate. Senator Belisle was one of our best Mayors and made significant contributions to the development of Belmopan City during his two terms. I look forward to Senator Belisle’s continued contributions to the rebuilding of our beloved UDP. Congratulations to Senator Bradley on his appointment. I look forward to your contributions in the Senate on behalf of the Belizean people as well as your contributions to the rebuilding efforts of our beloved UDP.” End of quote.
