"BPP Officially Launches the People's Referendum Initiative"
Amid the dysfunction that occurred on Friday both inside the National Assembly, as well as outside, which involved a few who saw fit to go beyond the ambit of the law, your Belize Progressive Party - BPP, was hard at work, touching base with the people. Unfortunately, the media chose to highlight the sensational spectacle and virtuoso performance put on by the PUDP. Additionally, they acknowledged that the effort of the Church, was hijacked.
In case you were unaware, your BPP launched its effort - The People’s Referendum - Friday August 26th in Belmopan, outside the National Assembly Building, during the sitting of the House. Simultaneously, the effort was also launched online. By way of this undertaking unlike any other political party in the history of Belize, the BPP wants to hear from you! Throughout the Friday August 26th occasion, members of the BPP manned a tent, where 23 Mock Referendum questions were polled. Via that effort, we received over 100 hard-copy submissions on a variety of issues ranging from the Chief Justice’s ruling on Section 53 of the criminal code, to the legalisation of marijuana, as well as the all-important question of whether the GOB should sign the UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC), as well as a number of other, salient issues. Additionally, we received the contact information of individuals who are interested in aiding with the actual mock referendum, the BPP intends to host, nationwide. In this regard, your Belize Progressive Party - BPP urges Belizeans and true friends of Belize, both at home and abroad, as well as those within the business sector, to not be consumed with the “white noise” that emanated from the well-entrenched political corruption of the PUDP that, like a choreographed theatrical production, unfortunately became the focal point of August 26th House meeting; nor the unfortunate commotion that occurred outside the House, brought on by some who may have been a bit overzealous. Instead, we call on you to lend your support to the only, active political party that has entrenched within its Constitution, the Supremacy of God and is ready, willing and able to do the work of the people. The PUDP share a symbiotic relationship in which hand wash hand and in the long run, the scourges of: NEPOTISM, CRONYISM, THE MISMANAGEMENT OF THE NATION’S RESOURCES and ALL OUT CORRUPTION, persists...all at the expense of the people. Stop and ask yourself, “Was the business of the people, accordingly, attended to by our elected officials during that House meeting?” If one truly thinks about it, what actually was achieved by the elected members of the House, yesterday? More debt! Take the much-needed, bold step away from the status quo and lend your support to the “New Political Consciousness” that is sweeping the nation of Belize. Join the Belize Progressive Party - BPP in its earnest efforts toward providing better governance, through participatory democracy and the application of the fundamental tenets of Good Governance. Do your part by supporting “The People’s Referendum” and help us to put Belize on the appropriate path toward sustainable development.
