PUP calls Civic Center contract ‘rubbish’

By BBN Staff: This week the Government of Belize signed a contract with Apex Belize Ltd., a subsidiary of US-based Apex International LLC for the management of the newly built Civic Center in Belize.

The Opposition, People’s United Party believes that the contract is “rubbish” since public officers should have been allowed to manage the stadium.

PUP’s Deputy Leader, Cordel Hyde told 7news that he thinks that it is “incredible” that of the 15 to 17 thousand public officers, of which many are trained, none were not afforded the opportunity to manage the Civic Center.

“There are 15 thousand public officers, some people say 17 thousand public officers, some of those persons are trained in some of the most prestigious universities in all the world and you tell me you can’t find one public officer or a few public officers who can manage a facility like that or learn to manage a facility like that? Something about that makes no sense,” Hyde stated.

According to Hyde, a foreigner along with a silent local partner received the contract and he doesn’t see why it is so “incredibly” difficult to manage the stadium.
