It is no secret that the main Opposition Party has been grappling with some serious financial woes in recent years. A struggle that the PUP has never seen before as it has always had the physical and financial wherewithal to rally supporters, sparing no expense. With another five years of being in opposition, Love News asked the PUP Chairman, if the media entities of the party, namely, Vibes Radio and the Belize Times would remain operational.

“In terms of post mortem, first of all I don’t like that term at all because nothing is dead here, so how can’t we do a post mortem. This party is alive we got 47% support countrywide but there are lessons to be learned from every election and those lessons are more keen when you lose an election. Certainly, we have to look at what we did right, what we did wrong, where our short comings were and try to make it up at the next election. In terms of today that wasn’t part of the process we didn’t do any type of reflection or looking back as to what happened in the last election it was more “let’s make one step forward” and that’s what we did today.”
Any party leader chosen to lead the PUP come January 2016, would have to find about fifty thousand dollars monthly to keep the media organs operational as well as the Secretariat.
