BPP logoThursday, October 22nd, 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: A late evening press release from the Belize Progressive Party (BPP) calls on Prime Minister Dean Barrow to, quote, “give serious consideration to the extension of the election date,” give the aftermath of the recent bad weather that hit Belize.

The new party, which is fielding 25 candidates for the general election on November 4, said that while the system was not a hurricane, the hardship and suffering it has caused is tangible. It cites Sarteneja as an example of communities cut off by flood waters and whose residents have been forced into temporary shelters.

But what does this have to do with the election franchise? The BPP claims that it is possible that many voters may be disenfranchised and unable to exercise their right to vote on November 4.

An extension of the date would prevent lingering effects like outbreaks of infectious disease and give everyone a chance to recover the BPP concludes.

Both major parties the People’s United and United Democratic Party have put up a full slate of candidates, making the count 87.
