Political Clientelism and Democracy in the Jewel

Thank you for staying with us. Vote buying and vote selling have both been a dark, but open secret in Belize’s electoral process. The culture exposes a situation where the electorate is by and large dependent on whom they elect. Politicians have become, in essence, the first response to public welfare. A new book, written by former EU Ambassador, Dylan Vernon, argues that the situation is at a crisis point, which, if it goes unaddressed, can have serious problems for democracy. Reporter Dale McDougall attended the launch of the book today to learn more. 

Copies are available at the University of the West Indies Open Campus and online for 70 dollars from now until August. Thereafter, copies go for 100 dollars.
