Nicanor Requena Launches Campaign for Toledo East

In June, several aspiring politicians will be vying for a chance to fill the vacant seat in Toledo East. Since the passing of the late Michael Espat, several men have submitted standard bearer applications to the People’s United Party in hopes of representing the southern constituency. So far, CEO Dr. Osmond Martinez, Espat’s son, Melhem Espat, and Nicanor Requena, brother of Minister Oscar Requena, have launched their campaigns. Yesterday, Love News spoke to Requena about his intentions and what he plans for the area if elected. 

Nicanor Requena, PUP Candidate, Toledo East: “I see the need where our farmers, our taxi drivers, our fishermen, our educators, our teachers deserve better representation to be able to address the needs of our people.” 

Paul Mahung, Toledo Correspondent: What is the computer trail looking like?

Nicanor Requena, PUP Candidate, Toledo East: “It is looking really well, Paul. It is looking really well. Our people continue to highlight in the communities the need for better roads, better streets, access to land. Our youth need access to sporting facilities, opportunities for them to excel and to bring forth that sportsmanship that we all have. I also believe that our fishermen deserve to be able to make a sustainable livelihood, a livelihood that is dignified and that they are able to successfully maintain their families. Similarly, our farmers want an opportunity to be able to market their produce but for that to happen our roads need to be improved. Our water systems in the communities need to be improved. Health. Our health posts in the communities need to be fully equipped with doctors, nurses, and medicine accessible to our people 24/7. I believe that I have the capacity and people are embracing me to be able to be that voice for them in Belmopan. Moving forward, I believe that it is a matter of working together. Development must come to Toledo but it must be planned and it must have meaningful consultation with our community leaders, with our chairman, our village council, our town mayor and councilors and it must ensure that we provide that livelihood opportunity for our people in the long term.”

Requena is an expert in natural resource management, an educator, a farmer, and a tour guide.
