Is the Referendum Necessary at This Time?

Prime Minister John Briceño


Prime Minister John Briceño

“Honestly I was one of them that saying maybe we should have the referendum and get it over with earlier, but when they told me it was going to cost as much as five million dollars, we said it’s really too much. And that five million dollars we could use to help people to get food on the table or help kids to go to school. There are so many other things that we can do. Maybe we can talk to the churches if they were prepared to say to hold it back and that when the time comes, that we’ve worked out all of these issues and we’re ready to put the law into effect to hold the referendum before we do that. I’m prepared to speak with them and ask them if they’re prepared to do that but we can’t hold it back anymore. It is out of our hands.”
