Prime Minister and Opposition Leader meet to discuss national issues

Posted: Thursday, April 26, 2018. 4:22 pm CST.

BBN Staff: Yesterday morning, Prime Minister Dean Barrow and Opposition Leader, John Briceno met in Belize City to discuss several national issues affecting the country.

Though none of the two political parties issued an official statement, reports are that the two leaders spoke about when to hold the national referendum, the re-registration exercise set to begin on July 1, and Belize and Guatemala’s relations.

The Government of Belize informed that Belize will conduct its national referendum after the re-registration exercise is done. The national referendum is on whether or not to go to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for a final solution to Guatemala’s territorial claim on Belize’s continental, insular and maritime territory.

Briceno had indicated in a media interview that he personally supports going to the ICJ, however, the PUP had not taken a position on the issue yet since there are many pro and anti-ICJ activists within the party and all angles must be examined.

On April 15, 2018, Guatemalans went to the polls and voted to take the long-standing territorial dispute to the ICJ.

On Friday, April 20, a Guatemalan congressman introduced a bill to provide and promote for the strengthening of relations with Belize and to facilitate the immigration procedures to enter Belize.
