Hulse Questions Lavish Spending on Bye-elections. What’s It All Worth?

Melvin Hulse

Hulse then goes on to speak about the extravagant spending in the bye-election, claiming that millions will be spent unnecessarily, even though the seat of government will remain in the hands of the U.D.P.


Voice of: Melvin Hulse, U.D.P. Standard Bearer, Stann Creek West

“I do not support Dean and what he is doing. I think Dean is making money and he is gonna mess up his head. Spending over two million dollars on a bye-election gets you nowhere. It doesn’t achieve anything because if you call election in three months, everybody has to go back again. But if you call a bye-election, P.U.P. noh the spend no money. I don’t know why the U.D.P. is talking stupidness about P.U.P.; oh we beat yo and everything. P.U.P. noh wah spend any money on a bye-election; dehn noh wah spend no money on no town board or city council. For what? The government noh change. They are not wasting any money on these things. None, and they know that Dean Barrow do not, have not and will not support the rural with any money. Ina towns and cities, he will do it and that is why they won nearly all the rural areas because they spend money pan the rural areas, but Dean noh spend nothing. They spent six hundred thousand dollars in every constituency in Belize City. Well he give me ten thousand, but rural don’t get money. And so I don’t know weh ih benefit. He already has control of the national assembly, why you need a bye-election, bwai.”
