Arthur Saldivar, Attorney for Belize Peace Movement

“We want just what the court can do which is to ensure that the Election and Boundaries abide by their responsibility and duty imposed by the constitution.  We have seen in our country where the breakdown in law and order has taken place and what the effects have been.  If there is anybody that is required to show respect for the law it is the Elections and Boundaries, the reason being that they are the ones to safeguard our system of governance, our democratic system of governance and insofar as they‘re abdicating that role, they are undermining democracy.  We don‘t need that, we don‘t want that because we don‘t want to continue to go down the slippery slope that we‘re on in this country.  So here‘s the deal, here‘s the reality of the situation, as it stands right now we have constituencies in the city that are inordinately small.  They are too small to be considered true constituencies.”
