P.U.P. Leader John Briceño: “We have to be smarter and we have to work harder”

John Briceño

When we spoke to P.U.P. leader John Briceño, we also asked him about his plans for the first hundred days should be become Prime Minister. There are thirty-five more days for the national elections on November eleventh and whichever party becomes victorious will need to deal with a number of national issues affecting every single household, from the economy, to jobs and corruption.  Briceño says his party has plans to get Belize back on its feet starting with the economy.

 

John Briceño, Opposition Leader 

“The economy is something that we need to deal with immediately, how are we going to get tourists back in the country and making it easier for them to come but at the same time keeping safe our visitors and Belizeans. The issue of agriculture, what is it that we are going to do? We need to get people to work as quickly as possible and thirdly, is the issue of corruption. What are some of the fundamental changes that we need to do be it through the constitution or passing other pieces of legislations to ensure that we can do everything possible to curb corruption, including limiting the powers of the ministers. One of the things we are going to ask the Attorney General is to review the laws to see how we can curb or limit the powers of the ministers because as it is right now they can do virtually almost anything and nothing can be done to them. We cannot continue to government this way. We have to change. We have to be different. We have to be smarter and we have to work harder.”
