While Prime Minister Dean Barrow was putting the final touches to his Cabinet, the People's United Party met at Independence Hall. The opposition party has still not conceded the elections because of alleged Election Day irregularities for which it has filed three petitions in court. The P.U.P. is blaming its defeat on Mark Espat and Cordel Hyde, who held what were considered as safe seats in Albert and Lake I, but stepped down just prior to the elections, which ended in a seventeen-fourteen victory for the U.D.P. The party says they can no longer run or hold any seat on a P.U.P. ticket. But the opposition says that they are energized by the significant gains countrywide and it plans to reconnect with its base in the city where of the ten seats, it won only in the Freetown and Fort George divisions.

And will be inducted into UDP. Barrow would be smart to have Mark Espat on his team when renegociating the Superbond. Cordell? Barrow would have to split them up to control them, so give Cordell NY? Then what happens if someone very wealthy offers a few UDP ministers an offer they can not refuse to cross the aisle? Someone who wants to control Belize thru their banking, telecommunications, hotels and real estate interests? Similiar to what occured in Turks and Caicos? Wouldn't take but a few million dollars to do that and thats a drop in the bucket for the cash cow BTL had been to a past owner or two...but alot to a govt minister. Could get interesting.
