P.U.P. Prepared to Work with G.O.B. on Issues of National Concerns

John Briceño

But with all that said, Briceño ended his presentation to kick off the debate by extending the hand of cooperation, claiming that his party is prepared and able to assist the government in tackling issues which affect Belizeans across the board.


John Briceño, P.U.P. Leader

“We will help on initiatives that bring meaningful relief to the poor. While we are at it, why not give a large portion five million dollars that is budgeted for Belizeans with disabilities to the churches, they already have the mechanisms in place to effectively manage these kinds of funds and I am sure they will be very open and transparent in doing so. We will work with the Government if they want to find the money to roll out NHI for every Belizean man, woman and child. We are prepared to take to the streets if this government will work with us to develop a plan to stop the killings. Mr. Speaker I beg the Minister of National Security to give us a plan that will bring the killings to under one hundred murders per year and end the urban civil war that has over taken some of our best communities in our cities and towns. Let us come up with a plan to develop our human capacity so Belizeans can be more relevant, efficient and productive both in the public and private sector. We are ready to cooperate on initiatives that will help our struggling agro productive sector. We will work across the aisle with you on initiatives that will help create more small businesses in Belize. We will cooperate on initiatives that will help to strengthen transparency and accountability.  Mister Prime Minister let us together sign the UN Convention against Corruption. We will work with you to fulfill our commitments under the Sustainable Development Goals. And make no mistake about it Mister Speaker, we will work with the Government on finding a peaceful and lasting solution to Guatemala’s unfounded claim to Belizean territory; clear in the understanding that we will never surrender one square centimeter of what we know is rightfully Belizean territory.”
