Will Darrell Bradley Make a Comeback in 2020?
He is currently the president of the Senate, but before Darrell Bradley was the two-term Mayor of Belize City. Bradley, the ambitious politician, however, stepped aside and did not seek re-election in 2018. It is not to say that he is ruling out active politics to serve as a sitting member of the House of Representatives. But to do so, he would first need to win a division. In his first attempt back in 2015, he was beaten by a small margin by current Caribbean Shores area rep Kareem Musa. News Five asked Bradley today about his political future with the U.D.P. One thing’s for sure, he does not expect to contest in 2020.
Darrell Bradley, Former Belize City Mayor
“I think that I am taking a little hiatus. I think that there’s always a good place to sit out sometimes to reflect, to seek a little discernment and just to get guidance and to calculate whatever next steps may be in the future for me political wise. I don’t think that one has to hold an office to be of service. I can always reflect on the fact that I teach, I practice law; I serve in the national assembly. I do a lot of volunteer work and so forth so that I think my orientation has always been wherever I am to be of service. Of course I think I made it no secret that I would hopefully someday want to aspire to higher elected office in this country and I think that that is in the future, but I can’t see in terms of exact steps tomorrow, day after tomorrow and so forth.”
“We have a general election that is coming up. Are you going to take advantage of that; put your name in for a particular division?”
“Well I would have to see. I mean it is something that one kinda calculates. I won’t be skirting the issue to say that that’s something that I would want to do. I would actually want to do that, but it would depend on circumstances, it would depend on my family and other considerations. And I’ve been the type of person who I think that opportunities and doors open themselves, if you are at the right spot. I was disappointed in relation to the Caribbean Shores elections; I thought it would have gone the other way, but of course notwithstanding that. But I think it was my first attempt at elected office at the highest level of the country and that’s something I think I will give at least one more shot. I don’t know where, I don’t know what time, but that something that I would seriously consider with a view to do that.”
