To Whom Does Lisa Shoman Belong?

Lisa Shoman

While the Leader of the Opposition is prepared to respect Shoman’s decision, she says she has not relinquished membership in the People’s United Party.  According to Shoman, the matter of her political allegiance is irrelevant.  Instead, she acknowledges that Belizeans are a more formidable opponent of Guatemala when there is a bipartisan effort to stand up for the country.

 

Lisa Shoman, Attorney for Government

“You had better ask Party Leader Briceño about that.  As far as I am concerned, I am a member of the People’s United Party and until the day I am not a member of the People’s United Party that’s my political affiliation.  But honestly, that’s neither here nor there.  I don’t forget that it’s the People’s United Party who started this process in 1999 and even before then and that it has been carried on as a bipartisan process for many years.  I don’t forget that it is always when we are bipartisan, when we put aside party concerns and put the country first, that is when we are strongest in terms of Guatemala.  So I take no joy in what has happened today.  It is really regrettable.  I was unhappy to see the headline in the Prensa Libre today, go and have a look because I think that nobody has the right to tell us Belizeans how to, vote except Belizeans.”
