By Marion Ali, Staff Reporter

The UDP’s Darrel Bradley was re-elected as mayor in Wednesday’s municipal elections.

Bradley received 11,836 over the PUP’s Yolanda Schakron, who got 6,665 votes.

The new Belize City Council will include the UDP’s Dion Leslie, Philip Willoughby, Dean Samuels, Bernard Pitts Jr., Kevin Singh, Michael Theus, Alifah Elrington Hyde, Hyacinth Latchman Cuellar, Dr Alain Gonzales and newcomer, Jason Edwards.

Of note is that Belize City, which is the largest municipality by far, with over 42,000 registered voters, only drew about 20,000 voters, which is less than 50 percent.
