By BBN Staff: Independent political candidate for the Belmopan Constituency, Anna Banner Guy, is calling the candidates from the major political parties out for a public debate. Banner Guy issued the invite today, following an invitation from the Love Foundation to participate in a debate, for which the candidates from both the People’s United Party (PUP) and United Democratic Party (UDP), have declined to participate in.
“A public debate is a forum for all candidates to present their ideas and agenda and measure it against those competing for votes. It is a time for Belmopan citizens to measure the value of the candidate’s key issues and a place to ventilate it in the public sphere. A public debate elevates the process and goes beyond unchallenged Facebook pronunciations,” Banner Guy said.
She noted that participating in public debate would allow voters to critically analyze a candidate’s decision-making capabilities, and gauge whether or not that candidate makes decisions with the best interest of the constituency at heart.
Guy also stressed that her participation in such a debate is important as an independent candidate, whose presence in the race represents an opportunity for Belmopan residents to change the status quo which has been maintained by shifting back and forth between UPD and PUP.
“The Belmopan constituency deserves to hear everyone’s position on this matter in a debate format. I, Anna Banner Guy, hereby invite my opponents of the major political parties to meet me in the debate room,” Banner Guy added.
