SUMMARY OF RECOMMENDATIONS | System of Government & Scope of Political Reform in Belize
The Commission recommends that the system of national government in Belize continue to be based on the parliamentary executive model.
The Commission recommends that the present political reform effort should focus attention on how to address the inadequacies of the current system and so improve the practice of Belizean democracy.
In particular, the Commission urges that the following areas be urgently addressed by the Government and people of Belize:
(a) Decreasing official waste and corruption; (b) Enhancing opportunities for people's participation in the legislative process; (c) Enhancing opportunities for women in political leadership; (d) Enacting campaign finance regulations; (e) Reviewing the role of the Senate in the legislative process; (f) Restoring faith in the independence of the Judiciary as the ultimate protector of constitutionally guaranteed rights and freedoms; (g) Enhancing the effectiveness and impartiality of the public service in the delivery of services to the Belizean public; (h) Ensuring greater oversight of the Legislature over the Executive branch of government; (i) Ensuring that elected officials and public officers who violate procedures and laws are held accountable; (j) Decreasing the divisiveness of partisan politics in the society; (k) Ensuring that Belizeans become more educated about their rights and about their political system; (l) Assessing if Belizeans want to retain a non-Belizean and monarchial Head of State.
The Belize Progressive Party highly recommend that you read this 17 year old report. The PUDP has done and will do absolutely nothing to fix a broken, decrepit system that benefits them.
