By BBN Staff: As Belize prepares for Village Council elections, a team of Villagers from Independence has stepped forward to represent their community without the banner of any of the two major political third parties.

Lead by Akeem Wiliams, the “Real Deal” team consisting of Mireya Majano, Myrdibeth Cabral, Denisha Burgess, Jarvis young, Darryl
Lozano, and Lloyd Coe, say they are ready to change the culture where progress comes at the whim of a political party.

Independence that will be lead by the people.

The elections are set for June 30.
