By BBN Staff: The Belize Progressive Party (BPP) announced this week that it will be contesting nine seats in the upcoming General Elections.
The BPP said that, following its Strategic Planning Meeting, held over the weekend, its team, led by Party Leader Patrick Rogers will be contesting the Pickstock, Fort George, Port Loyola, Freetown, Queen Square, Toledo East, Stann Creek West, Belize Rural North, and Corozal Southeast Electoral Divisions.
The party also made several resolutions coming out of the meeting which includes the right to land for every Belizean citizen 18 years and older, the protection of protecting the health of the citizenry by keeping all land, sea and air borders closed until the COVID-19 pandemic passes, and the empowerment of small farmers to increase food security and ensure income generation.
“The Resolutions also included zero tolerance for corruption, the parceling out of lands along the Sarstoon to citizens to assert sovereignty and at the same time putting the area into productive use to alleviate poverty and unemployment, especially among the youths,” the BPP said.
Founded back in 2015, just weeks before the November 4 General Elections, the BPP is an amalgamation of the People’s National Party (PNP), Vision Inspired by the People (VIP), and We the People Movement (WPM) political third parties. The BPP came out on a platform of anti-corruption and a reform agenda to “fix the system” which it said that both major political parties have used to enrich themselves to the detriment of the Belizean people.
