Over the weekend, the People’s United Party (PUP) marked its 69th anniversary by holding its National Party Council at the Memorial Park in Belize City. The event did not go without promises of better governance as the PUP’s Party Leader, John Briceno says they will stamp out corruption.
Leader of the Opposition John Bricenio: “As we look forward to the next election let us be inspired by what the PUP has done over this past 6 decades so that as we approach the 7th decade as our People’s United Part we can square our shoulders to face the challenges ahead. Yes the PUP will work to end poverty in Belize and to restore greater equality for our people. As I am the leader of this party we are going to ensure that we work for the poor people first. I want to make this very clear and I know that is why the UDP is getting very frightened and desperate, we are going to put an end to corruption.”
At the National Party Council, there were four important resolutions passed namely: resolution on a Program for Youth-at-Risk, resolution on the PUP ICJ Awareness Campaign, resolution on Crime and the Impositions of a State-of-Emergency on Southside Belize City, and a resolution on Ending Government Inefficiency. Also, thirty-one party supporters from each constituency were awarded.
