PUP meet in Belize City with party’s National Executives to discuss plans for General Elections

Wednesday, July 22, 2015. BMG: The People’s United Party’s National Executive and standard bearers met at Independence Hall on Tuesday.

In the wake of the Dangriga by-election defeat and departure of Godfrey Smith as national campaign PUPmanager,  just 18 of the party’s 31 standard bearers attended, with notable absences including northern caucus and rumored leadership candidate Cordel Hyde of Lake Independence.

However,  party leader Francis Fonseca and chairman Henry Charles Usher shot down suggestions of a boycott, saying the absentees had apologized for not being able to attend.

The party discussed its plans for the general elections; transfer of electors between divisions; and a proposed national tour.

The PUP has also named a team of coordinators for its national campaign in lieu of a single one. Fonseca denied suggestions that Eamon Courtenay was approached by agents of his to take the post, stating that such an approach would be made personally. In any event, Courtenay denies interest in the job.

    The problem with the PUP at this point is one of CREDIBILITY. The present Leadership is perceived as those we fought against back in 2005. Voters still remember the deals that were done in detriment to Belize. And simply we cannot forgive those who took Belize to dangerous paths. The PUP is in dire need of showing the people that it is now a reformed party. And for this to happen, people who are tainted should make way for a new leadership. Voters will return when the PUP can show that it is now ready to take Belize to prosperity. And this can only happen under a new Leadership. There is a great possibility that both John Briceño and Cordel Hyde are these people. Both are capable of leading this party to victory for the benefit of Belize.
