Former Minister Anthony Boots Martinez Fails in Recall Petition Against Port Loyola Area Representative

Former Minister Anthony Boots Martinez has failed in his recall petition against the Area Representative for the Port Loyola division.  Back in July, Martinez announced that he would be collecting signatures from the registered voters in Port Loyola to trigger a recall of Usher’s elected status.  Once the recall mechanism was triggered, Martinez had until September 8 to collect fifteen hundred signatures.  The deadline has passed, and our newsroom understands that the threshold was not met.  It is an outcome that the PUP Chairman, Henry Charles Usher had predicted some two months ago.

Henry Charles Usher, Minister of the Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform: “Isn’t that recall petition over now? I thought it was over now. That’s what Booth said, “it’s over now”.

Reporter: It’s half way through he said. 

Henry Charles Usher, Minister of the Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform: “I’m not even looking at that.”

Reporter: I mean, if he’s successful though, do you think the PUP representative can withstand it? 

Henry Charles Usher, Minister of the Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform: “I am absolutely sure that the Honorable Gilroy Usher would be able to withstand some type of whatever measure that fellow brings.”

Usher issued a statement late this evening, saying that now that the residents of Port Loyola   have soundly rejected the recall, it is time for the work to continue in his division.
