Ten Caribbean countries going to the polls in 2020 including Belize

Posted: Saturday, November 9, 2019. 11:11 am CST.

By BBN Staff: Belizean politicians and party supporters are actively preparing for the 2020 General elections.

Though Prime Minister Dean Barrow has stated that the general elections will be held in November 2020, that can change and the general elections can be called anytime before the assigned date.

The incumbent United Democratic Party (UDP) is hosting a national convention in February 2020 and will elect a new leader for their party.

That leader will need to re-unite the party and heal all wounds after the convention in an effort to garner an unprecedented fourth term in office.

The Opposition, People’s United Party (PUP) has served as Belize’s opposition since 2008. The party has renewed its focus in a massive convention in 2018 with their newly elected leader, John Briceno.

The duly elected UDP Leader will face off with Briceno to be Belize’s next Prime Minister.

Along with Belize, 9 other Caribbean nations are expected to go to the polls.

The following countries are expected to hold elections in 2020:

Saint Kitts and Nevis: Date to be announced

Guyana: March 2

Suriname: Date to be announced

Dominican Republic: May 17

Trinidad and Tobago: To be announced

Anguilla: To be announced

St. Vincent and the Grenadines: To be announced

Turks and Caicos: To be announced

Puerto Rico: November 3

Saint Lucia’s Loop notes that with the many issues facing the region, from US-China relations and the emergence of new economic powerhouses to Venezuelan and Haitian migrants and climate change challenges, the elections across the region could have a major impact in several areas.
