Family home in San Mateo, San Pedro - The Largest Tourist Destination in Belize What are the results of the decisions of the Belize government under the guidance of the PUP and UDP over the past 36 years, post independence? Two things to focus on: Policy Positions. Track record. Here are some of the most importance results after almost $4,000,000,000 (Four BILLION) borrowed and spent: Almost 50% poverty rate and climbing. Failing health system. Failing education system.

Getting to the villages in Toledo East is really a challenge, However after the haul across the bumpy dirt road, it is a pleasure to be there with the friendly people and the beautiful environment. Then the sadness kick's in When you find out that even today, kids in these villages still have to do homework with flashlight because there is no electricity, and kids in school without books they need. It can be depressing at times but then again there is hope on the way.. time t
Belmopan | September 20th, 2016 PRESS RELEASE "BPP Calls On PUP To Pay POCA Fines" Yesterday’s grandstanding, on National Service Day, by the PUP Parliamentarians who have finally declared their assets was noteworthy, because it was a classic case of concocted deception, as their actions touched on only part of the entire picture.
In the discipline of Public Administration, there exists the reality of doing things purely for political expediency and given the full scope of
Your Belize Progressive Party - BPP is “The New Political and Social Consciousness” of Belize. That is evidenced via our fresh approach toward not only pointing out the issues, but more importantly, providing viable solutions. Neither side of the PUPD non-divide can make such a principled claim.
Bearing this in mind, we realise that although we are focused on solutions, there are occasions when we must clearly identify for the Belizean public, just how futile it is for yo
PATRICK ROGERS: My response to my first cousin (GeeMichael Reid) spin doctoring here on fb - trying to insinuate that the BPP are being financed by UDP.., "1st cousin geemike - I make it a point to not comment too much on fb; however, every now and again, like now, I feel the need to join a thread and clear up some spin doctor's input. Now, We know you switch from UDP to PUP after 1998 PUP victory and you are still with the PUP. We also know that you never supported the indep
Bighand Banner posed this question to BPP's Chairman, Paco Smith - "While I'm 100% against all,and any kind of corruption, and all for change and good governance, kindly explain to me,how a UDP giving away/lending a Guatemalan company $12,000,000.00 of working men and women sweat and blood,have to do with PUP? I'm sure you can dig up much more recent dirts if you so chooses! Dean Barrow recently gave away $29,000,000.00 of BTL monies's because of arrogant,pettiness,and spite,
This reflects the core problem within the PUP. Anyone who would dump garbage like this does not care and has no civic pride. The BPP cries shame on the leadership and all who attended the PUP convention over the weekend. This was the welcome for students, Belmopan residents and visitors to the garden city on Monday morning. They want to run the country, yet they could not properly plan to have sufficient garbage cans around the school grounds. It is important to note that
Belizeans and true friends of Belize, Today you go to the polls in order to elect those who shall represent you and ultimately form the next Government of Belize. Your Belize Progressive Party has fought hard over the past several weeks toward providing you with the only viable, national alternative to the corrupt forces of the UDP and PUP, who basically have raped and pillaged this nation's resources for the past 34 years. As Belizeans we love to complain, yet on this occasi
with the utmost respect how can you all support a party that has its hands in why Belize is in this state, my people let us stop being selfish and think about the 150k people living in poverty in a country with oil, land citrus, cane and much more resources to self sustain. do u think GOD is pleased with this? especially when this should not be, this is an injustice to the people of Belize. please i beg you all to pray and think of the 150k people in poverty that all the moni
During 2003 and early 2004, Hon. Servulo Baeza, Minister of Fisheries, under the People's United Party - 2003 to 2008 - showed great interest in protecting the fisheries and the country's economy. He held public meetings, took polls and made surveys regarding gill net fishing and its effects. He concluded that to save our fisheries, gill net fishing had to be outlawed in its entirety. Gill net fishing is destructive On April 22, 2004, in Monkey River, at the first public,Beli
A counter argument to Belizeans whom say government is not to be blamed for the flooding that is taking place in Belize City. Indeed, Government cannot control Mother Nature, and will never stop a natural disaster, however, with proper investment in certain mechanisms and infrastructural systems, damage can be reduced and promptly mitigated, and even avert disaster. Case in point - Hurricane Katrina:
On 29 August 2005 there were over 50 failures of the levees and flood walls
When I campaigned in Stann Creek West, majority of the villages were divided down the middle. Those who got 'bus runs' and those who didn't, for example. The hate and division could almost be seen down the middle of the villages with the naked eye. When, just two simple, tiny change of:
1. Rolling out village by-laws to give them autonomy.
2. Guaranteed budgetary allocation. Would create an environment where money will flow into these communities for municipal projects, inv
The UDP cannot be trusted and the PUP are confused. When PM Dean Barrow was asked by the media if he intends to keep his manifesto promise of the 13th Senator, his answer was NO. The act was passed into law but awaits the PM's order to proceed. The Chamber of Commerce, Unions and social partners have been demanding that the 13th Senator be put in place but to no avail. The PUP on the other hand, as a last minute act of desperation to win the 2008 election, ordered the GG to p
