Prime Minister and Former Candidate on rejection

Yolanda Schakron

The crowd outside the Charles Bartlett Hyde building waited in anticipation for a decision. Having lost the battle in the courts, Schakron emerged visibly shaken. For Prime Minister Dean Barrow, it was a matter of law but Schakron made an impassionate statement saying it is not over and that she will continue the good fight.

“First of all, I want to show you that I am a Belizean and my passport hasn’t expired. I want you to know that I am not giving up. I see the suffering and the pain in lake independence. Dean Barrow, you dah wah cold man, I would tell you that to your face. You go dah di states when you got married, I get married in Belize, I came back home. I am a Belizean, I love my country. It’s not over yet. I will continue the fight because I see the pain and the suffering that you have put the Belizean people for these four years. Dean Barrow, it’s not over. You and the U.D.P. will not conquer me. I want you to know that the women of Belize are listening. It’s not over, Dean Barrow. I will continue the fight even if I am not allowed to run for Lake I, I will continue the fight for the people of this country and I will continue, I will continue until you, Dean Barrow and the United Democratic Party is out of power. I will continue being a member of the People’s United Party and will work hard to put you out of power. We have had enough. I know that God is on my side and God is my strength and Dean Barrow, you cannot fight the power of Jesus Christ. So March the seventh, the People’s United Party will be returned to power and the people will be free.”

“I don’t want to sound in any way haughty but lord, I am not—please nobody better not suggest that I am mixing it up with Miss Schakron. I am, as far as I am concerned, I am above that. This is a matter of the law; this is a matter of dishonesty on the part of the People’s United Party in not disclosing from the start that this lady was a dual citizen. The law must take its course. The P.U.P.s that we saw at the time when the U.D.P. tried to change that law, how adamant and insistent they were to turn around now and run somebody in violation of the law, is the greatest hypocrisy and they will pay for it at the polls.”

    I don’t like the PM’s smirk when he commented on the situation. It’s sends a wrong message across the country for all women. You see, regardless of what the situation was, it was a serious matter for all women. His expression showed mockery and this hurts so many households. Men…

    MY PERSONAL VIEW IN THE MATTER. ITS NOT ABOUT SHAKRON ITS ABOUT THE PEOPLE. LETS NOT TRY TO COVER THE SUN WITH ONE FINGER.

    TRUE MATTER OF THE STORY MY PEOPLE….WE HAVE TO CARE FOR BELIZEANS. ITS UP TO US TO STAND FOR OUR RIGHTS AS BORN BELIZEANS.

    IN THE FIRST PLACE A POLITICAL SEAT SHOULD ONLY BE COVERED WITH A BORN AND RAISED IN BELIZE BELIZEAN. NO ONE WITH ANY HISTORY OF BEING NATIONALIZED OR DUAL CITIZENSHIP SHOULD EVER BE PERMITTED TO BE IN ANY POLITICAL OFFICE . THIS HAPPENS BECAUSE WE BELIZEANS DONT STAND UP FOR WHAT WE BELIEVE. WE SIT AND WAIT FOR FOREIGNERS TO COME AND TELL US HOW TO RUN OUR HOMES AND COUNTRY,

    COME ON BELIZE, WE HAVE OUR OWN INTELIGENCE AND BRAIN. LETS PRAY TO GOD THAT THE RIGHT PARTY COMES IN AND WE START DOING WHAT WE HAVE TO DO. WORK WITH WHO SO EVER IS IN POWER. ITS NOT ABOUT COLOR BUT ITS ABOUT WE THE PEOPLE . ITS FOR US , OUR CHILDREN AND OUR CHILDRENS CHILDREN,

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT…….

    MANY SEE THE LITTLE MONEY THEY HAVE GOTTEN LAST FOUR YEARS .

    WHAT HAPPEN TO ALL THOSE BUSINESS THAT HAVE HAD TO CLOSE, NOT BECAUSE OF MISMANAGEMENT BUT NO MONEY, NO CUSTOMERS. TOO MANY FOREIGNERS COMING IN TAKING THE BREAD AND BUTTER OF THE FELLOW BELIZEANS. THIS IS THE ONLY COUNTRY WHERE IT CAN BE DONE. WE CANT GO TO OTHER COUNTRIES AND DO IT.
    FACT: OUTSIDERS COME WITH MONEY AND GET RICHER. A TRUTH HERE….THERE ARE THOSE THAT COME FLAT BROKE AND HAVE PROPERTIES AND ROOF…WHY? …BECAUSE THEY BEG TEY GO BEHIND THE POLITICAL LEADERS AND DO WHAT WE THE BELIZEAN WOULDN’T DO

    NOT FORGETTING HOW MANY PUT A BUISNESS AND NOT ONE BELIZEAN HIRED. WHERE DO BELIZEANS BENEFIT IN THAT SCENARIO, PLEASE PEOPLE OPEN YOUR EYES IN THE REALITY OF THE MATTER.

    FELLOW BELIZEANS VOTE WISELY. LEARN TO BEG. WE WANT JOBS FOR OUR PEOPLE WE WANT SCHOLARSHIPS FOR OUR CHILDREN. WHO SO EVER WILL BE THE PRIME MINSTER….LET THE PRIORITY BE THE EDUCATION OF OUR BELIZEAN PEOPLE…..PLEASE

Isn’t our beloved Belize good enough for his “high class” standards??? Yet he will have the audacity to refer to the PUP as hypocrites!! Hold on tight PM because not even you can place your head on the block that you have this race won!!! Careful cause you may be the one to “pay at the polls”!

    The medical bill for Mr. Rodwell Williams was paid by Sagicor Capital Life, one million dollar is the maximum benefit you could get with them, and as far as I know he’s insured with sagicor.

  9. The Educated One says:

    The country needs change. Agreed. Some days you all want the law enforced some days you want them to overlook the law…I don’t get it. Regardless of di man bald head and all of that…the issue is a legal one…
