BPP Candidate Says Elections & Boundaries is Pussyfooting

Josephine Tamai

On Thursday, BPP’s national campaign manager Robert ‘Bobby’ Lopez called to question the Election and Boundaries Department’s lateness in releasing the voters list.  Lopez told the media during a press conference that the department seems to be pussyfooting with the delivery of the list.

“With my greatest respect for Elections and Boundaries, I hope you’re not playing games with us because you promised us last week when our secretary general and chairman delivered our letter asking for our election list that it would be ready on Monday.  We went on Monday, it’s not ready.  We went on Tuesday. It’s not ready.  We went on Wednesday, it’s not ready and we’re here Thursday and we’re going back again.  And we were assured that all parties will get it at the same day.  But we hear little birds telling us that the lists are out and the other parties are using it.  Relax, relax, God is in control.  Relax I tell you, relax.  Even if we don’t get the list guys, even if we don’t get the list on November fourth, with the stroke of your pencils Belizeans far and wide and every corner of the country, I ask you, humbly I ask you make the change.”
