P.U.P. Rally reigns over Cayo

The opposition People’s United Party picked up momentum in the west over the past weekend. The west has traditionally been considered a U.D.P. stronghold, but with the thousands that turned up on Sunday, the opposition is upbeat. There are five constituencies at stake so the P.U.P. machinery geared up for the event. News Five’s Delahnie Bain reports.

The blue machinery revved up over the weekend for another pre-election rally. This time, it was the standard bearers in the west who addressed voters about what the People’s United Party has in store.

“It’s under the People’s United Party that we’ll bring jobs to Belize. It is under the People’s United Party that we’ll bring better health care to all you Belizeans. It is only the People’s United Party that will bring new industries, better education, five acres of land for all the people who want to be in farming. All Belizeans are going to have a piece of land for you to live. Education it’s going to be one laptop for every primary school and secondary school.”

You and your incompetent UDP Ministers will be voted out…PUP ALL DI WAY!
