With each passing day, the evidence of corruption, greed and its accompanying ills come to light as it relates to this wretched PUPD system. Your Belize Progressive Party - BPP remains on the forefront of not only exposing this, but also providing possible solutions to the intentional dysfunction of the powers that be. Additionally, we must remind the Belizean people at home and abroad, of the hypocrisy of both sides of the PUDP non-divide. Case in point, recently the PUP has attempted to use the matter of the Prevention of Corruption Act (POCA) as a platform. Yet I remind Belizeans the BPP has: (1) championed FULL, not selective ADHERENCE BY ALL ELECTED OFFICIALS since as far back as October 2016 , (2) called out the so-called "Integrity Commission" on its inception in January 2017 to ensure that POCA is enforced to the fullest extent of the law and (3) that our demands, unlike the PUP's are not half-hearted. In effect, Belizeans, don't be fooled by the self-serving calls of the PUP to have the Integrity Commission partially enforce the POCA. If Belize is to move forward via actions which are synonymous with Good Governance Principles and Practises, we must ensure that the POCA is fully enforced, across the board. That means ensuring those elected to public office, as of 2008, are made not only to declare their assets, but of equal importance, pay the requisite fines, for non-compliance with the law! This is but a brief reminder to Belizeans and true friends of Belize, both at home and abroad of the treachery of the PUDP, who do not have the moral suasion, nor the conviction to do what is right, for the people of this nation. Only the BPP has the moral compass, the political will and the unbridled determination to hold all who were elected to serve this nation, irrespective of their political party hue, accountable. Therefore, Belizeans be sure to check your change, whenever either side of the PUDP non-divide makes an utterance because the overwhelming likelihood is that they continue to speak with forked tongues. Neither shall change and that is why it is important for the electorate to understand that the substantive change Belize sorely needs, will only come by way of the Belize Progressive Party - BPP. As always, I invite you to not only THINK ABOUT IT, BUT TO ALSO DO SOMETHING PROACTIVE, AS WELL. TOGETHER, WITH YOUR SUPPORT, WE CAN AND WILL CHANGE THE SYSTEM! 8867 Today 8867 Tomorrow 8867 Forever Belize, Sovereign and Free - NO ICJ!
