PUP rally in Corozal draws thousands; G-11 attend

By Marion Ali, Staff Reporter

The People’s United Party’s (PUP) Power to the People rally in the Corozal district on Saturday drew several thousand people.

The rally, which started from Libertad Village to San Narciso, where speeches were held, included a motorcade that had over 125 vehicles and the standard bearers and supporters of the four constituencies in Corozal.

The event also saw the attendance of all the menbers of the ‘G-11’, which had over the past six weeks been boycotting party events. Two of the 31 standard bearers were missing, none of whom made up the G-11. Kareem Musa who is running in Caribbean Shores was reportedly travelling and Dr. Lesbia Guerra who is running in Cayo West has a death in her family.

This week, the party and the G-11 will meet to “work out a process and a strategy” to chart a way forward as a united forced heading into the general elections.
