Keep Politics Out of I.C.J. Decision

Patrick Faber

On Monday, Opposition Leader John Briceño told News Five that government has fallen short of meaningfully consulting with the People’s United Party on what has long been a national issue.  This evening, Deputy Prime Minister Faber responded by saying that the P.U.P. are in fact the ones that are using the referendum as a political football.

“What we have difficulty digesting though is when political parties, and in particular, the People’s United Party, after fully engaging to go to the ICJ, because it may be politically expedient now, because the vibes coming from a good many people and a good many activist group is saying to say no to the ICJ, they want to use this for political mileage and I say shame on that.  Our goals sometimes, our work as leaders in this country make it sometimes unpopular work, but we ought to do what is right for our Belizean population and for our country as many times and as often as we can.”
