Briceno has not resigned; Barrow and Briceno remain as co-chairs of national COVID-19 oversight committee

Posted: Friday, April 17, 2020. 1:20 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Leader of the Opposition John Briceno this afternoon confirmed with Breaking Belize News that he remains co-chair of the National COVID-19 Oversight Committee.

Last week via video statement he said he was considering resigning and pulling other Opposition members from the various committees because he felt their ideas were being ignored. He had charged that some members of the Government took the opportunity to introduce political motive into otherwise innocuous issues such as distribution of food assistance and funds for unemployment relief.

The Government never made a direct reply but Prime Minister Dean Barrow, in Thursday’s national address, reiterated that it was “country over party” as far as he is concerned.

General elections are constitutionally due at any point after November 13 when the House will be dissolved after five years sitting.
