P.M. Barrow on the Campaign Trail in Orange Walk

Dean Barrow

On Wednesday, Belizeans will go to the polls to elect representatives in sixty-seven seats up for grabs countrywide. In politics there’s no such thing as a sure thing, but political pundits have debated at length about municipalities which are guaranteed one way or the other, and others which will be battlegrounds. One area which is considered an unofficial safe zone for the People’s United Party is Orange Walk. And maybe that’s why the U.D.P. is pulling out all the stops where political promises are concerned. Prime Minister Dean Barrow is much-remembered for his “millions and millions and millions in the coffers” speech in Cayo North months ago. And on Tuesday night he offered a little taste of, in his words, the Promised Land.

 

Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“If you had had a United Democratic Party Town Council…in addition to the Belize/Corozal road…in addition to the San Antonio Road, pretty much every street in this municipality would have been paved, would have been concreted, would have been maintained to a standard that would have made you proud. In a way, what we have done is to show Orange Walkenos just a little piece of the promised land, because that is what Belize/Corozal Road and the San Antonio Road represents…a piece of the promised land. And we have done that to whet your appetite, to mek yu hunger for more…to make you understand that all you have to do to completely inherit all of the promised land is to vote for Yvette Liu Torres and the councillors of the United Democratic Party.”

    Paved, PM You must blind. the road has been paved over and over and still there is nothing done right. If you are NOT able to address the problem then get out of way and have others who care about our country and its PEOPLE to make a difference.

    you drive Government vehicle and use everyone’s tax money not only your parties tax money to cover your ill minded habits. you use everyone’s tax money to repair and buy new vehicles.. how in the world will the pavement be done right. it is not the first time this road has been PATCHED not paved and 6 months down the road and its the same. Shame on you and your idiotic party members.
