We now move to Belmopan for the Senate meeting. In today’s Senate session, the United Democratic Party’s usual lineup was entirely changed from the last sitting. Lead Senator Michael Peyrefitte is out of the country, Senator Sheena Pitts is dealing with an urgent personal matter, and former Belize City Mayor Darrell Bradley replaced former Belmopan Mayor Khalid Belisle. Leader of the Opposition Moses “Shyne” Barrow spoke to Love News this evening about the shift.
Bradley was Lead Senator today and pinch-hitting for Senator Pitts was Shary Medina, who was Deputy Mayor of San Ignacio/Santa Elena. Appointed as temporary senator was Ashton McKenzie, the former Mayor of Punta Gorda.
