Police Commissioner adjusts guidelines for Nomination Day

With less than twenty four hours before nominations begin for the upcoming general elections, the Police Commissioner Chester Williams has been fine tuning his security plans with a special focus of Covid-19 regulations in mind. A part of that fine tuning entails the cancellation of political motorcades which he had only just approved yesterday via a press conference. Today Commissioner Williams wrote to the Chief of Staff for the People’s United Party, Stuart Leslie (PUP AND POLICE VO STARTS) requesting that the party cancel its plans for Nomination Day motorcades. The Commissioner cited the primary reason as being preventative measures amid the Covid-19 spread. In response, the PUP issued a notice to its supporters saying, in part, quote, “Our candidates and their teams were organizing for massive motorcades in keeping with the wishes of our people all over the country. We would have been diligent and disciplined in wearing masks and maintaining social distance. But the Police Commissioner has pleaded that the resources of the Belize Police Department are stretched thin at this time, decimated by COVID-19. Out of respect for the police authorities and out of an abundance of caution we are yielding to the Commissioner’s request.” End of quote. //////
