There might be more candidates added to this list after Nomination Day. If no other candidates file their nominations by October the 15th, 2015 this list will remain as it is.

Election Day-Wednesday November 4th, 2015 Polls will be open From-7:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M.

The counting of the ballots shall begin after the polls are closed and the results will be made available to the general public.

Indicator-Belize District have the most seats and their results will be coming out earlier than the rest of the country. Based on the results from Belize District, you can have an idea as to which party will win the election.



1-Election in Belize are normally held every five years but the Prime Minister of Belize has the constitutional power to dissolve his or her Cabinet and call early elections when he or her chooses to do so. This will be the fourth time this has happened in Belize history. In the first two times it happened both the PUP and the UDP Lost the elections. In 2012 the UDP escaped by a narrow margin. That election was called in 2012 but was due in 2013.

2-The members of the House of Representatives can also table a Vote of No Confidence in the Belize House of Representatives and if they get a majority of the elected Representatives to go along with them, then the Cabinet must be dissolved by the Prime Minister and he or she must call early elections.

3-The Prime Minister of Belize is not elected through a direct vote by the people of Belize. He or she must be the Leader of his or her party first. Then, if his or her party win the most seats in the General Elections, he or she will become the next Prime Minister.

However, if the Leader of the Party loses his or her seat in the election after they gain the majority of seats, the elected Representatives will decide from among themselves who will be the Prime Minister. That has never happened in Belize history. However, the Leader of the Party has lost before and the PUP and UDP had to elect a new Leader in the House of Representatives.
