"BPP CALLS FOR ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS REGARDING GOOD GOVERNANCE"
Amid the extreme crisis in governance that has gripped the nation, your Belize Progressive Party reiterates its solid support of the BNTU in its yeoman’s effort to ensure the GOB adopts, implements, and adheres to Good Governance practises and principles. In this regard, we encourage all unions, civil society organisations, the private sector, and tertiary level teachers and students to become actively involved in the BNTU’s just act of civil expression via industrial action. Voter Re-Registration:
To add to the discourse, in the name of bringing not only an expression, but also the practise of Good Governance principles to the fore, the BPP champions the call for Voter Re-registration and Re-districting to be held, on schedule, on or before 2017. Of note, 2017 will mark 20 years since any such Re-registration exercise! After all, with the electorate’s franchise being fundamental to the democratic process, Belize can no longer afford to allow for outdated voters lists to erode the integrity of the electoral process. Contribute to BNTU Strike Fund:
Additionally, the BPP proposes that the Belize Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) and the Belize Business Bureau (BBB) intensify their efforts to hold the GOB to its promises regarding signing onto the UNCAC. This can be achieved by contributing to the BNTU Strike Fund at Heritage Bank, account number 1080719, which would clearly demonstrate their unquestionable conviction toward the need for government to make good on its promises, which remain precisely that, solely promises, at this juncture. This recommendation is part and parcel of the BPP’s approach to not only calling a spade a spade, but also demonstrating our commitment to providing viable options toward ensuring a solution to the problems facing our nation. The call for Good Governance, as well as our unyielding anti-corruption stance, are among the foundations of the BPP, as it has been the rallying call of our principles for the past 15 years. With the critical situation involving our nation’s governance and the widespread levels of corruption, your Belize Progressive Party remains steadfast in its support of all teachers and the BNTU for its principled stance. In such regard, we remind one and all that the “BPP Gat Teechaz Back in Standing Up for Belize”.
