Will Vega return to politics ?

Area Representative for Orange Walk North, Gaspar Vega has been notably absent from House meetings since his resignation from Cabinet over a land scandal.  Rumor has it, however, that Vega is looking to make a comeback.  With the recent resignation of the UDP’s Orange Walk Standard Bearer, Dr. Homero Novelo, speculations have mounted that Vega will re-emerge on the political scene.  Vega’s Cabinet colleague, Wilfred Elrington confirmed to the media that there is interest.

Hon. Wilfred Elrington, Pickstock Area Representative:  Actually I had met with him, he had stopped in one afternoon at the building where I am at St.Mark Street and he spoke to me very briefly and if I can recall what he said was that he was proposing to become much more politically active which I thought was a good thing. He’s a young man, he has a lot of competence, he spent a lot of time with those people and he wants to assist, he wants to continue to assist the nation and so I thought it was a good gesture on his part.”

In an interview with the Leader of the Opposition, John Briceno, he told Love News that he welcomes the return of Vega in Orange Walk North.
