P.U.P. Demands Order Papers for Friday’s House Meeting

As the House prepares to meet on Friday and the Senate on Monday, it is still not clear what specifically government will be doing to ‘fix’ the problem that was flagged by the Supreme Court in respect of the writ of referendum. Attorneys for the government are said to be busy drafting legislation, which when passed, would trump both the interim injunction and concerns about the writ of referendum.  The People’s United Party met in parliamentary caucus today and in a late evening release, complained that it had not received the order papers and accompanying documents normally issued in advance of a sitting of the National Assembly.  The caucus says it is undemocratic and highly inappropriate that the government would not provide members of parliament with the order papers. The release ends by saying that “the P.U.P. reiterates its position set out in the People’s Declaration of the respect to the sacred right of the Belizean people to decide whether or not we should submit the unfounded claim by Guatemala to Belizean territory to the International Court of Justice for final adjudication.”
