By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  On Sunday, August 13, 2023, the UDP hosted a national convention in Belize City.

In a recorded message from Former Prime Minister Dean Barrow, he said that Belize’s democracy is under attack by the current Briceno administration.

“This convention comes at the time when it is no exaggeration to say that our country is at a crossroads, the constitutional opposition is under attack, democracy is under attack and our people are being relentlessly assaulted by the current administration,” Barrow said.

Barrow claims that the current administration has gone “rogue” and that “their contempt for due process and the rule of law is frightening.”

The Former UDP leader said that Belizeans are suffering due to the cost of living and the masses are simply finding it impossible to make ends meet.

“These are times when the great United Democratic Party is needed more than ever. I therefore implore you to unite, to come together, and to fight like hell for our party, for our democracy, and for our country.

Don’t stop until you free this country and return it to the people, the rightful owners of our Belize,” Barrow added.

Barrow also said that the current administration has been “uncaring about the welfare of the people in this country.”
