By BBN Staff: The Special Envoy for Development of Families and Children, Rosanna Briceno, issued a statement today congratulating all female candidates who participated in the 2021 Municipal Elections.
“You were inspiring, graceful, and professional. The historic participation of women in yesterday’s election, and their subsequent triumph to such esteemed positions of leadership, marks another galvanizing moment in our journey of advancing gender equality in Belize, renewing our optimism for a more equitable future for women,” a statement expressed.
In addition, the Special Envoy extended congratulations to all newly elected and re-elected women councilors across Belize, to Belmopan’s 1st female Mayor – Sharon Palacio, and to Corozal Bay’s 1st female Area Representative – Elvia Vega Samos.
“Your success in this year’s municipal election is a win for all Belizeans, present, and future. When a woman’s voice is heard, when she participates in decision making and when she exercises leadership, her ingenuity, the strength of her vision, and her ambitions lead to tangible and quality gains for our democracy, including greater responsiveness to our citizen needs, a more inclusive economy, and a more sustainable future,” the Special Envoy added.
The Special Envoy said that deliberate action on the part of women to make a difference through gaining knowledge and understanding of how the system works and building capacities to engage the system is crucial.
The Special Envoy also emphasized that men play an active role in ensuring female representatives are supported and able to participate fully, having their contributions considered and given equal opportunities.
