UDP Chairman says newly appointed Ministers of State promoted for pay raise

Posted: Saturday, April 13, 2024. 10:33 am CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: Recently, Prime Minister of Belize promoted 3 Area Representatives to Ministers of State.

Chairman of the UDP Michael Peyrefitte questioned the move and said that the decision was to keep everyone happy “at any cost.”

“I guess the Prime Minister has to find employment for those who he believe delivered in in the March six municipal elections, or at least to give them an inner track to, you know, to hopefully maintain that majority of 16 in the next general election, because he wants to keep everybody happy at any cost,” Peyrefitte said.

In addition, the UDP Chairman said that those new Ministers of State don’t play a role since Ministries already have a Minister and a CEO.

“But we have to remember ministers of still are not full ministers. They don’t they don’t sign any statutory instruments, for example, they don’t play any role other than essentially being sort of in between the CEO and the Minister?” he added.

“I can’t see what the purpose of some of them were, other than maybe a bump in salary, a bump in privileges, I don’t know,” the UDP Chairman said.

Peyrefitte also questioned the Ministers of State specific job descriptions and responsibilities.
