"BPP Speaks on egregious and dictatorial move by the PM Dean Barrow"
Amid the egregious and dictatorial move by the Prime Minister Dean Oliver Barrow, to intentionally impinge upon the rights of Belizeans to move freely on the Sarstoon River, your Belize Progressive Party (BPP) commits to ensuring that such contemptuous treatment of our citizens shall not be summarily dismissed. We contend that accountability must be ensured.
We draw the attention of the public to the following points, which are imperative, moving forward, so as to not afford the willful despotism of the political directorate to go unchecked. These include:
Assessing the response of the Guatemalan Congress, regarding the PM’s surrendering of sovereignty over the northern portion of the Sarstoon River, by way of his enacting the S.I., in light of Guatemala’s current, physical control of the area
Our vehement opposition to any consideration by the GOB to further placate the Guatemalans, by amending Belize’s Referendum Act,
Our unequivocal objection to the crafting and submission of protocols for consideration by the Government of Guatemala, concerning the use of the Sarstoon River; and
The immediacy with which Belizeans must register to vote, as the recent actions by the Prime Minister provides a credible indication of his possible intent to accelerate the referendum process and thereby intentionally disenfranchising Belizeans from exercising their right to vote
By virtue of his unilateral edict to enact and apply the “Public Safety Regulation” to purposefully inhibit Belizeans from exercising their constitutional right to free movement, Prime Minister Barrow demonstrated his contempt for any form of expression that is not in line with his agenda. This has elucidated a very troubling concern which evokes the legitimate question as to where his allegiance truly lies. Rest assured, your Belize Progressive Party (BPP), in its capacity as the only true opposition to the tyranny which has developed after 34+ years of PUDP duplicity, shall remain vigilant toward ensuring that the liberties Belizeans are guaranteed under the Constitution shall not be eroded and eventually erased.
