93 candidates will contest for 31 seats

And speaking of candidates, we are reliably informed that the total number of people nominated in the nation’s thirty-one electoral constituencies is ninety-three. The Peoples’ United Party and the United Democratic Party each fielded a full slate while the National Reform Party and Vision Inspired by the People put forward eleven each. The National Belizean Alliance has four—that’s including the two People’s National Party candidates in Toledo—while a total of five independent candidates have signed up. Nine constituencies remain two horse contests while the most crowded divisions are Toledo West and Cayo Central where five candidates will compete for a seat.
