By BBN Staff: Belizeans United For Equal Rights at Home and in the Diaspora (BUFERHD), led by former UDP Cabinet Minister, Derek Aikman, will be conducting a voting simulation starting at 6 p.m. next Wednesday inside the St. Mary Hall in Belize City.
The purpose of the simulation is to show that your vote is not a secret because each ballot carries a ballot number.
“The PUP and UDP powers are doing EVERYTHING to stifle the event and disregard and disrespect it, especially by ensuring their media affiliates that are partisan to them do not cover it in the Press,” said a statement issued by the organization.
“There are a FEW media houses that are covering it! This is a very historic and news worthy and sensational undertaking that will destroy the very false PRETENCE of our democracy! It will expose that the emperor is wearing NO clothes indeed,” the statement continued.
“The world will see that the vote is NOT secret in Belize and that it is legitimate that it can be told how every single voter votes in this country in EVERY election and that this is used to pay people to buy election victories! So we do not have a democracy.”
According to BUFERHD, the Belizean citizenry should put off all further elections until the ballot number is removed from the ballot.
