Finding a New Leader of the U.D.P. & Leader of the Opposition

Michael Peyrefitte, Chairman, U.D.P.

“There’s nothing wrong with two separate persons holding two separate roles. They are very separate you know. Leader of the party has nothing to do with the leader of the opposition. As we’ve examined over and over again, the leader of the opposition is chosen by the majority of those in the House so it is whatever the five of them decide. Whoever is the person that they want, the Constitution of Belize says that they are the ones that determine that; the leader of the party is completely different. It is always possible to have two separate people holding two separate posts.”
