PM says General Elections will be called after Petrocaribe reaches rural areas
Tuesday, May 12th, 2015. BMG: Last night, it was reported that Prime Minister of Belize Dean Barrow will be calling an early General Elections.
During the official installment of Tracy Taegar Panton as the UDP Standard Bearer for the Albert division, PM Barrow focused majority of his speech on what he calls “the frenzied activity by the opposition.”
PM Barrow also added that, and we quote, “His government has nowhere to go until they finish to roll the petrocaribe funds into all rural areas of the country. They think that the general elections are near. And because they know that whenever those general elections come, they will go down to their third consecutive defeat. So they think that those elections are near. They see the defeat staring them in the face. So their going through all kinds of twisting and turning and contortions and acrobatic postures, positions to try to avoid the inevitable. but I want to tell them ‘simmer down man, simmer down, don’t get excited, don’t get carried away because the general elections aren’t coming right now’. And I can tell them why, you see that same Petrocaribe money that hot their hearts so much, we got our plans. The kind of roll out to the villages we developed, will take several months to complete. So nobody can hurry us into no general elections. Because before we call those general elections, we have to make sure that every rural constituency in this country feel the Petrocaribe money. In other words, we want that every village in this proud land of ours will have the residents, mom, dad, brother, sister and especially the children singing ‘you see my new bridge? Petro gave me. You see my new street? Petro gave me. You see my classroom? Petro gave me’.”
