By BBN Staff: The Opposition, People’s United Party (PUP) issued a statement today thanking all Belizeans for participating in yesterday’s Referendum.
The PUP says that the peaceful exercise of democracy must always be applauded.
“ Now that the people have spoken, it is our responsibility to hold this government, as well as the next government, to task to ensure that the process leading to the ICJ, is done according to the rule of law,” the party said.
The PUP calls on the government to place as much importance as they did on the Referendum, to other important national issues such as the high cost of living, rising gas prices, a failed healthcare system and the increase in crime and poverty.
