PUP Calls for Observers in General Election

Updated: September 30, 2015

Opposition leader Francis Fonseca has written to Prime Minister Dean Barrow.  In his letter the Opposition leader is requesting that electoral observers be invited to witness Belize’s election process on November 4.  According to Fonseca, the announcement of the election date only weeks after the close of the annual transfer period for electors and days before the commencement of the process for the annual revision of the electoral lists, will not allow for the electoral lists to be revised for 2015. Fonseca ends by saying quote “I therefore anticipate that you will invite the OAS, the Commonwealth or CARICOM to be present in Belize as independent monitors for this upcoming general elections in Belize.”
