By Aaron Humes: Former Cabinet Minister Elijio “Joe” Briceno, father of current People’s United Party (PUP) leader John Briceno, is in an extremely grave condition at the Northern Regional Hospital at this hour.
PUP chairman Henry Charles Usher today asked for the prayers and thoughts of all Belizeans and PUP’s to be with Mr. Briceno and his family at this time.
Briceno served as Minister of Energy and Communications in the 1979-1984 term of the PUP under the late Right Honorable George Price. He later retired from politics in favour of his son, who has held the Orange Walk Central seat ever since.
