Prime Minister Briceno in one of his motions rose to amend the standing orders of the House of Representatives which explores the possibility of having virtual house meetings in the event that it becomes necessary.

Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister of Belize: Because of COVID it is very difficult to be able to have House meetings here in the House because we’re in a small cramped quarters and many people ask well why don’t you just do it virtually, use Zoom or Teams or whatever it is that you want to use and we have to explain to them that the Standing Orders never envisioned for a day that you can hold House meetings virtually. This is something that’s not new to Belize they’ve they’ve been doing it in other countries especially like in the Caribbean and so basically we’re not inventing the wheel basically we’re just moving with the times and give you Madam Speaker and your staff the proper tools to decide how best we can hold House meetings and also with the Senate safely and to protect each and every one of us instead of having all these glass or plexiglass around us and keeping our mask and doing everything possible to try to protect one another.”
