By BBN Staff: Leader of the People’s United Party (PUP), John Briceno, has issued his weekly address and urged Belizeans to unite to save the nation.
Citing the recent issues with electricity and water in Caye Caulker, Briceno said that it is not a good beginning for the country.
Speaking about the start of the sugar season, Briceno said that it will be a challenging one.
“We have to get our productive sector back on track so that we can produce more products not only for export but also for us to be able to feed ourselves,” Briceno noted.
In addition, he said that ‘we must ensure’ teachers and public officers settle their many issues with the government.
“We need our children in school learning and the government needs to provide the much-needed services that they are expected to provide to our people. So we have to respect our teachers and public officers and we have to work with them,” Briceno added.
Throwing hits at the ruling United Democratic Party (UDP), Briceno said that it is time to save Belize from the neglect, incompetence and corruption which has plagued Belize for the past 12 years.
“ For us in the PUP the work in 2020 is well underway. Our plans are being finalized, our campaign is being fine-tuned and our machinery is tested — so we ready,” the party leader emphasized.
Briceno said that the message that drives Belizeans after all that has happened over the past decade is one to save Belize from the UDP since many communities are today less safe, and too many corrupt UDP politicians and their cronies have ripped the Belizean people off.
In speaking about the general elections, he said that his party is ready and urged everyone to join to save Belize and get on with the work of “building a Belize that works for everyone.”
