Marin also discussed the results of the May 8th ICJ referendum and whether the majority “NO VOTE” means his political influence in the Corozal Bay constituency is dwindling. According to the Minister, he did not believe he needed to exert influence on the day of the referendum.

“I went various times to the media and I explained to the people of Corozal and told them you know what, this is my take I do believe that we supposed to go to the ICJ and to finish all these claim from Guatemala but at the end of the day it is the individual if you were there in Corozal I didn’t had any tent, I had any banners out there, I didn’t had any people taking out people because I did believe that it’s the people who will need to decide on that, now when election time come that is totally a different ball game but this one it’s the people that is going to the ICJ.”

“So, you don’t interpret that particular way how the referendum went as some fort of you losing support or influenced on the voters?”


Pablo Marin, Minister of Health


“No at all, because I can say to the people and I think the people of Corozal can tell you all that I am the only minister and if you compare to the Mayor that what I have done for Corozal you can see it and I have proven to the people of Corozal and that I will do what I have told them to do and so I have fixed street, and done two basketball courts an I continue to work with the people I have helped in education and in sports I have given bikes and I have given lawn mowers to the people for them to be able to work along and that is me and I am with the concept that the ICJ should have been the people’s voice and not a political voice.”


The final political matter discussed by Marin is the upcoming UDP leadership race which has attracted two sure candidates so far in Patrick Faber and John Saldivar. While Marin had openly supported Saldivar in his failed bid for UDP Deputy Leader this time he seems more cautious about showing his cards.


Pablo Marin, Minister of Health


“Am still looking at both of them and id o believe that both of them have do the capacity to be the Prime Minister or to be the Leader of the Party but I will still be watching and will always do that.”
