Attorney General Vanessa Retreage called a meeting with twenty two non governmental organizations this afternoon to discuss the selection of the thirteenth Senator which will represent the NGOs. Armando Aban, International Commissioner of the Belize Scouts, spoke on behalf of the NGOs in terms of what was discussed in the meeting. Aban stated that they have started the process to select the thirteenth Senator but they have to take all NGOs into account to properly select a representative. They will be meeting next week.

The list sent by the AG included twenty two NGOs. Aban says they do not have a figure as to how many NGOs are registered in Belize as yet.
