The Belize elections


The Belizean public has shown its PUP government their extreme unhappiness with them. In yesterday's local elections, the PUP got beat in every municipality by their opposition, the UDP. And not just that, but the PUP won only 3 seats in the whole country! (Mayor and councilor in Punta Gorda and one councilor in Benque)

Will the UDP be less corrupt than the PUP? How capable are they? Time will tell, I guess.

The expectation is that the UDP will now call for an early general election & that Prime Minister Said Musa will try to block this. I'll keep you posted....
