P.M. Concedes, but Says All is Not Lost

Dean Barrow

Prime Minister Dean Barrow readily admits that the loss of the Belize City Council is a heavy blow to his United Democratic Party, and not one that will be easy to get over. But speaking as much to his supporters, as to the press, he encouraged the party not to lose heart, nor to forget their blessings in the six municipalities that the party did retain.


Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“With respect to Belize City, there’s no getting away from it; we’ve lost Belize City after controlling it these very, many, many, many long years, and it is a blow. But if we dwell too much on that blow, then we cheapen the victory in those six municipalities, the handsome victory in those six municipalities and that we will not do.”
