KEY RACES RESULTS-Freetown Division and Lake Independence in Belize City

FREETOWN DIVISION-The UDP candidate Doctor Carla Barnett lost to the PUP Leader of the Opposition Francis Fonseca. Despite her lost, I expect her to play a major role in the new UDP Cabinet because of her potentials to our country. She is an outstanding Belizean.

Lake Independence- PUP candidate Cordel Hyde defeated Mark King and regained back his seat that he left in 2012. He is a rising star in the PUP and will possibly be one of the candidates running for the leadership of the party.

Election Day-The Polls were open From-7:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. After the polls were closed ballot boxes were taken to their respective places and counting began immediately. The turnout was high and about 130,000 Belizeans voted in the General Elections.

Surprise-Belize District with the most seats results came out early. And based on those results, it was obvious that the PUP were in big trouble. Mayor Darrel Bradley ran in Caribbean Shores. He lost the election to Kareem Musa the son of former Prime Minister Said Musa. He will remain as Belize City Mayor. This is the first time in Belize’s history that we have a father and son in the House of Representatives. His other son is the Chairman of the People’s United Party and he might replace his father Said Musa in Fort George Division.

The United Democratic Party (UDP) did not take anything for granted and brought out full force to win as much seats as possible. Voter turnout was the key to win the elections and they brought out their voters. The PUP’s were hoping that a high turnout would work to their advantage but it did not. PUP were not ready for this election. Indications from Belize is that they were not fully ready due to the friction between some members and the 11 candidates who were demanding a Leadership Convention. The friction will continue into the next five years as early as next week.


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. This is the first time in Belize history that a political party called early elections and won by a large margin.

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. Dean Barrow will become the first Prime Minister of Belize to be elected for three consecutive terms.

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.

I had predicted 20 Seats for UDP prior to the elections and then I moved it to 22 Seats. Still, that is close to the final outcome 19 UDP-Seats and 11-PUP Seats. Now that the elections are over we should all come together as one people Belizeans.
