Toledo East by-election and nomination date set; no new voters accepted after June 10

Posted: Tuesday, June 18, 2024. 10:56 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Elections and Boundaries Department has notified that Governor-General Dame Froyla Tzalam has issued a writ of election for holding a by-election for the Toledo East Electoral Division.

The Writ informs that the day appointed for the nomination of candidates is Tuesday, July 2, and if more candidates are nominated than available to fill the seat, as expected, a poll will be taken on Wednesday, July 17.

The Department continues in a statement, “The Representation of the People Act clearly states that “the persons entitled to vote at the election of a divisional representative shall be those persons whose names appear on the register for that division, as exists on the Nomination Day.” In this regard, the cut-off date for persons wishing to be registered as electors and who wish to vote in the upcoming by-election was Monday, June 10.

The cut-off date allows the officers to conduct their due diligence on all applications received which includes the publication of supplementary lists and holding of revision court as required by law. Persons applying to be registered as electors after the cut-off date of June 10 will NOT be eligible to vote in the Toledo East Electoral Division By-election.

The appointed returning officer for the by-election is Therese Martinez, Assistant Comptroller of Customs, Belize Customs & Excise Department, based at Port of Big Creek, Independence Village, Stann Creek District. Assisting her will be Election Clerks Marion Nolberto, Education Officer I at the Education Department in Punta Gorda Town, and Venancio Ack, Acting Finance Officer III, based at the Sub-Treasury Department in Punta Gorda Town.

The expected candidates include Dr Osmond Martinez for the People’s United Party; Dennis Williams for the United Democratic Party; Wil Maheia for the People’s National Party; and possibly an independent candidate.
