Fonseca Says PUP is Serious About Governance Reform

Francis Fonseca

Fonseca also gave us a sneak peek into the governance platform of the party which will be launched soon. That plan will speak to issues like the thirteenth senator and the Integrity Commission. That’s important, he says, because that is what the people of Belize are demanding from their leaders.

 

Francis Fonseca, P.U.P. Leader

“We hear that same message loud and clear from citizens across the country so yes we will be unveiling very shortly a governance reform agenda which addresses all these important issues of accountability, transparency, removing very important plank in that government reform agenda is removing the serial discretion that allows minsters to engage in corruption, to engage in advancing their own interest or the interest of those around them. That is critically important, so yes that will be a very important agenda that will be launched in the next few weeks. That will set out in very clear terms our contract with the Belizean people, a hundred day contract, it will be a legislative agenda which will spell out very specifically how we will appoint the thirteenth senator, how we will fix the public accounts committee, bring in the social partners into that equation. How we will fix all of these other entities, the auditor general office, the accountant general office all of these institution of governance. Fix the senate to allow for greater oversight by the senate; so that we can have investigations carried out by the senate into issues like the Penner immigration scandal. Belizeans still have not been able to get a proper investigation inquired into that matter because it has been blocked at every step of the way by this U.D.P. government. So yes we have a very comprehensive, bold, progressive reform agenda which I think will find favour with the Belizean people.”
