PUP tight-lipped on decision for Belize City Mayoral convention, 125 applicants want to run for party in municipal elections

Posted: Tuesday, September 26, 2023. 7:49 am CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: The Executive of the People’s United Party (PUP) met in Belize City on Monday to deliberate on whether or not two-term Mayor Bernard Wagner will be endorsed to run for a third term or will have to contest a convention.

Through months of speculation, Wagner had indicated that he would not seek to contest if he were not endorsed. Party chairman, Henry Charles Usher, did not disclose the party’s decision to the media following the conclusion of that meeting and said the candidates will be notified before any public announcement is made.

Usher and Prime Minister John Briceño were also asked about councillor Allan Pollard, who has also indicated his interest in running for Mayor. Pollard recently cause a fellow councillor to speak out against him due to perceived campaigning during the unity parade on Independence Day. Prime Minister Briceño said Pollard is a promising young candidate.

Of note, the PUP has seen an influx of candidates submitting their names for the upcoming municipal elections with 125 such applications countrywide. There have been 24 applications for mayoral roles and 101 for councillor candidates with 23 alone in Belize City.
