With several boards and teams established under the Briceno administration the recently elected leader is now being accused of playing favorites. As a matter of fact, he is also being accused of nepotism as the media has reported on several family members being installed. While his family members possess the academic qualifications for the posts they hold, Love News asked PM Briceno to respond to those accusations of nepotism.
Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister of Belize: “We’re trying to get the best people that we believe we could put together that can work as a group, as a unit. People that have experience in business, in management, in finance, in the different industries and we believe that by putting these people together we can get these boards working again. I mean no offence to the former Senator Juliet Thimbriel I mean you have heard all of the big boards we have no such person like that, we have people that are qualified, that have experience and success in business and in the different industries to be able on those boards.”
