Majority of poll swings towards removing 9th Amendment

The government has agreed with the churches to trim the language in the controversial ninth amendment bill that has to do with a bar on the courts. But there is still concern that the amendment can have far reaching implications because it gives parliament supremacy over the constitution. Our question to the viewers this week is: do you think the government should withdraw the ninth amendment in its entirety? Seventy-one percent voted yes on our e-poll while twenty-nine percent said no. One viewer suggested that the bill should be tailored specifically to utility companies while another commented that “as a concerned Belizean and as a U.D.P., I want this government to completely withdraw the ninth amendment for the freedom of my Belizean people.”
