By BBN Staff: The Belize Peace Movement (BPM) informs that on August 3, it wrote to the Elections and Boundaries Commission seeking access to the Commission’s legally mandated annual reports for the period;  2016-2019. 

 For reference, the BPM noted that the Representation of the People Act, 10-(3) provides: “The Commission shall within three months of the close of a calendar year submit to the Governor-General an annual report of its activities along with any recommendation it may wish to make.”

The BPM says that as of August 17, 2020, there has been no response from the Elections and Boundaries Commission. 

“This lack of a timely response puts the Commission in violation of Belize’s Freedom of Information Act since the request was made pursuant to this law.  Having tried to obtain the reports from both the office of the Governor-General and from the Elections and Boundaries Commission, the BPM has sufficient reason to query whether the reports were ever undertaken and/or completed by the Commission,” the movement states.

The Belize Peace Movement says that it  remains committed in its vigilance to ensure accountability from those who are responsible to uphold the laws and comply with all regulations to uphold the fundamental tenets ascribed to good governance.
