Belize City residents will vote for one mayor and ten councilors from among these:

People’s United Party: Bernard Wagner, Mayor; Javier Castellanos, Kaya Cattouse, Micah Goodin, Stephanne Hamilton, Edmund Kwan, Michael Novelo, Natasha Pipersburgh, Allan Pollard, Jr., Deannie Requeña, Albert Vaughan, councillors.

United Democratic Party: Orson Picart, Mayor; Kera Bowman, Andrew Bradley, Alisha Craig, Dr Alain Gonzalez, Leon Guild, Allan Kelly, Kenny Morgan, Anazette Olivera, Meagan Tasher, Shane Williams, councillors.

Belize Progressive Party: Richard McCaulay, Mayor; Garry Matus, Patrick Williams, councillors.
