Hundreds of United Democratic Party supporters occupied the Guava Park in Belama this afternoon for the endorsement convention of Dr. Carla Barnett.
Barnett, who has been chosen as the party’s standard bearer for the Freetown division of Belize City, was flanked by party leader Dean Barrow, area representative for Collet Patrick Faber, and Belize City Mayor Darrell Bradley.
Area representative for Belmopan, John Saldivar also gave a brief speech of endorsement to Barnett.
Barnett, who has no political ventures prior to her endorsement, will run against People’s Unite Party leader and Freetown standard bearer, Francis Fonseca.
She explained when she was chosen to represent the party in that division, that she is confident that the skills and experience she brings to the table can secure a victory for her in the constituency.
