FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“BPP MEETS WITH UN ADVISORY MISSION CONCERNING THE REFERENDUM”
Your Belize Progressive Party - BPP takes this opportunity to thank the UNDP for affording the opportunity to dialogue with its UN Advisory Mission that is currently in country, concerning the upcoming referendum with Guatemala. We welcome the inclusion of the UN in the process and respect the purview of its involvement concerning this matter of national significance. With this in mind, the BPP voiced the immediate need for: (1) the GOB to commence and ensure that a transparent re-registration process is conducted prior to any referendum, (2) an unbiased and inclusive education effort through which all views on the matter are acknowledged and given due deference and (3) technical support to be provided to civil society and interested entities toward fostering the necessary dialogue, via an awareness campaign geared toward providing a full-scope of the options which are available to Belize on this matter of critical importance. In keeping with our unyielding quest to ensure that Belizeans remain aware and attuned, your BPP looks forward to this manner of transparent engagement with all necessary bodies, because it is essential Belizeans fully understand that the outcome of the impending referendum shall impact whether Belize stands to maintain its current, geographic reality.
This is fundamental to the BPP’s commitment to our motto of “8867 Today 8867 Tomorrow 8867 Forever”, for we shall leave no stone unturned, in order to ensure that Belizeans are adequately equipped to make an informed decision on this issue.
Today 8867. Tomorrow 8867. Forever 8867 | Belize: Sovereign and Free - NO ICJ!
