Reflecting on his the passing of this promising first term representative after the funeral, Prime Minister Briceno said that he wasn't quite ready to start talking about a replacement:

Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister
"November 11th, nobody thought that one month later we will be having lost one of the new PUP representative in Corozal. for the PUP. Dido represented the future of PUP, it breaks my heart as I see the suffering of his family, his two little daughters and the people of Corozal Bay where you can see genuine love for David "Dido" Vega. We are going to miss him and it will be very difficult to replace him, but I do believe that the people of Corozal Bay are going to do their best to be able to find someone who can live up to the legacy of David Vega."

"Has any thought been given to the way forward?"

Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister
"No, we know that we need to have a by-election within the next 3 months, but that is not something for us to be thinking about at this moment."
