Leadership debate to proceed tonight without UDP and PUP leaders

Posted: Wednesday, October 28, 2020. 4:16 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: The leadership debate scheduled for tonight will proceed with leaders of the Belize Progressive Party (BPP) and the Belize People’s Front (BPF).

Unfortunately, the leaders of the 2 major parties: PUP John Briceno and UDP Patrick Faber will not participate in the debate.

This afternoon, the committee issued a statement confirming that the debate will proceed as planned.

“This is governed by the fact that from the very beginning of this process the Leadership Debate Committee  (LDC) had committed to hosting the event as long as at least two candidates had confirmed participation. To date, the LDC has received formal commitments from the Belize Progressive Party (BPP) and the Belize Peoples Front (BPF), thereby satisfying the aforementioned requirement,” the committee said.

The committee noted that in keeping with that guideline, the LDC has indeed endeavored to avoid any meeting(s) with the candidates or their representatives, even though such had been requested.

“Instead, the modus operandi has been to host joint consultations with all four political parties. One such joint meeting was announced for Monday, October 26th. “ However, while all four political parties were invited, only the BPF was in attendance, with apologies (as it pertains to not attending the meeting) later being received from the BPP’s Party Leader. It is regrettable that the other two Party Leaders did not attend the meeting to have their concerns clarified, and instead insist on one-on-one communication,” the committee added.

 The committee says that it looks forward to an informative and healthy debate tonight
