PUP Leaders Outlines Voter Issues

Francis Fonseca

While health is a major platform of the Party, Fonseca says that there are other core issues which his party is addressing – issues which he feels voters will be looking at when they go to the polls on November fourth.

 

Francis Fonseca, PUP Leader

“People are very concerned about the economy there is a lot of uncertainly out there about jobs, their job situation, people want jobs, employment is big issue, health is a big issue, and our failing education system is a big issue. The whole sense of our country not having a senses of purpose, a sense of direction, corruption is central; you hear these issues wherever you go in this country, they are common threads and common concern of the Belizean people; so the economy, education, health, land and housing. People still want access to land and housing and of course these issues of corruption. These failing institutions, sometimes you think people don’t fully understand and appreciate these things but I hear so many regular folks come up to me and say what’s happening with the Integrity Commission, what’s happening with the Public Accounts Committee, how come these things are not functioning; we don’t have them anymore. And of course the big issue out here on the minds of the great majority of Belizeans is Guatemala, this uncertainty of where we are headed with this issue, the failure of this government to properly manage this Guatemala issue, this unfounded claim, to properly stand up for Belize, to represent Belize. We saw a good example on Friday, last Friday when Sedi Elrington got up at the United Nations as our representative, the representative of all the Belizean people on the World stage and effectively said man it’s a done deal, we are going to the ICJ. Made absolutely no mention to the fact that we are required legally to consult with the Belizean people, the Belizean people must have the last say on that matter, no reference to that. He is Gung Ho on going to the ICJ, no matter what the Belizean people say. People have to keep that in mind when they go to the polls on November 4th.”
