AG Michael Peyrefitte Bashes P.U.P.

Michael Peyrefitte

The Attorney General Michael Peyrefitte rebutted the lead senator across the aisle.  Peyrefitte questioned the People’s United Party’s position on the motion, stating that the P.U.P. in both the House of Representatives on Monday and during today’s Senate Sitting had the opportunity to challenge the motion by requesting an amendment.


Michael Peyrefitte, U.D.P. Senator

“Do you know why the P.U.P. is mad? Because no money is being given out. The Prime Minister made it very clear that COVID-19 is not for politics. No U.D.P. representative, no U.D.P. minister no P.U.P. Standard Bearer, no P.U.P. Area Representative will get any money but the P.U.P. wanted money. They don’t get the money so now they are upset. The only thing that will make them happy is if the Prime Minister says, here is fifty million dollars now divide it amongst yourself. That is what will make them happy but they are not going to get that. And they will have to continue to criticize all they want because COVID-19 is not about politics. COVID-19 is about protecting the Belizean people. And since they are so interested in thirty days, since you know what the Prime Minister spoke about so much yesterday, if the Leader of the Opposition wanted it for thirty days he could have applied to amend the motion in the House. Why didn’t he do that? Why didn’t you Senator Chebat try to amend the motion in the Senate so it can be thirty days if you are so interested in making it thirty days? But you are not interested   in making it thirty days. You are interested in grandstanding and trying to make the government look bad. That is all you are interested in. What is their position? Will they be in support in protecting the people in Belize or would they vote no simply because the circumstances don’t serve them well in this COVID-19? Even in COVID-19 the P.U.P. wants to benefit. What a strategy. The P.U.P. is sicker than COVID-19.”
