By Aaron Humes: Wil Maheia of Toledo (and Fort George) is now political leader of the Belize Progressive Party (BPP), taking over from longtime leader Patrick Rogers following a National Party Congress.

Rogers is now party chairperson, but under its constitution may not run for political office.

Patrick Williams is deputy leader and, in fact, several of the new executive are familiar third-party faces: Marcel Palma as deputy chair; George Myvett as secretary General, assisted by Anita Nicholas; Marissa Gabb as treasurer, assisted by Julett Austin-Vernon; Richard McCaulay as public relations chief assisted by Mario Noralez; and party trustees Sean Nicholas, Gary Matus and Linston “Blues” McKenzie.

While the Progressives insist they remain a viable alternative to the so-called “mass parties” and a “great leap forward for the nation” if elected, they are presently on fourth-party status following the 2020 general election, losing ground to Nancy Marin’s Belize People’s Front after fielding just eight candidates nationwide. They also fielded a few candidates in the March 2021 municipal elections.
