79% in online poll say no to 9th Amendment

Several legal minds and parliamentarians have publicly opposed the proposed ninth amendment to the Belize Constitution, while government has defended it. To add the voices of our viewers to the conversation, we asked earlier this week if they support the government’s move to prevent the court from reviewing legal challenges to constitutional amendments? Seventy-nine percent of the persons who voted on our e-poll said no, while twenty-nine percent said yes. Meanwhile on our blog, one viewer commented that “I agree with the intent behind this amendment, although, like many others, I am concerned about the precedent that it is setting.”

    While these are trying times for Belizeans, I think this poll proves that Belize is a Democracy. I’m not talking about the governments position (i.e., Barrow), I mean the peoples response. It is the people who determine the direction that a nation will go in, (sitting governments are temporary), thank God for elections.
