Fonseca Says Belizeans Must Consider Nation’s Sovereignty on Election Day

Francis Fonseca

Is the People’s United Party attempting to capitalize on what is being described as the foreign minister’s blunder?  General elections are just a month away and whatever can be used to gain political mileage is seen as par for the course.  The territorial dispute is of national importance says the Party Leader Francis Fonseca and the preservation of Belize’s sovereignty is paramount to the role of any government.  That, he says, must be taken into serious consideration on November fourth when electors go to the polls in early national election.

 

Francis Fonseca, Party Leader, P.U.P.

“Our objective here is to bring to the attention of the Belizean people a matter of fundamental importance to the future of this country.  We are in election season, we are in campaign season and election is only thirty days away.  But for us this is a matter of national concern, national security, but, as you know, I have said it consistently, the first duty and obligation of any government is the preservation of the nation state, the protection and defense of our territorial integrity, our national sovereignty.  So we have an absolute obligation to raise this matter and of course we were provoked to do so by the absolutely outrageous statements of the foreign minister on our behalf as a country and people on Friday at the United Nations on the world stage, making these absolute blunders before the world on behalf of the Belizean people.  So that is the first important point but I certainly will make no apologies for saying to the Belizean people that on November fourth this is an absolutely important consideration for each and every citizen of this country going into the voting booth to mark your x.  You must understand, you must understand and appreciate fully the consequences of that vote as it relates to this very, very important issue.”
