PM Briceno Supports Municipal Slates Ahead of Wednesday Elections

Prime Minister John Briceno has been making his rounds across the country, lending support to all nine municipal slates under the People’s United Party.  Today, he appeared on The Morning Show where he spoke on the reception he has gotten in all cities and towns.

Hon. John Briceño, Prime Minister of Belize: “I’ve been campaigning. I’ve been across the country. I visited every single municipality. I’ve been campaigning in all of them and I was listening to my colleagues from the Belize City Council and you know it’s kinda strange because that’s the very same feeling I’m getting all across the country. In every municipality that I go people are saying you know what we see that this government is working, we see that Central Government has turned things around. Nobody expected Central Government to be able to turn things around so quickly and the partnership between the Central Government and the Council which is supposed to be all the time not only now, we want to continue that practice, they have seen success. They have seen how it has worked because many of these councils when we won in 2021 were managed by the UDP and most of them were pretty much bankrupt. They have left virtually all the councils I mean virtually bankrupt with no money and everything was in disarray, was disorderly so our mayors and councilors had to first get in to try to put things in order. The secondly then to see the finances and how they could fix that and they’ve been doing that but it has taken some time. Most of them had zero equipment to pick up the garbage and just to do regular maintenance of streets or to do drains and so they have been investing in those things. So it took them pretty much the first year, two years to be able to do that.”

In the last municipal election in 2021, the PUP won 65 of the 67 seats
