P.U.P. to hold press conference on failed recall petition

The People’s United Party will be holding a press conference on Thursday to discuss the failed recall petition and, we assume, other pressing issues. But today, even as the Elections and Boundaries Office briefed the press on the reasoning behind the rejection of signatures and the petition, the P.U.P. held a National Executive meeting to come to a consensus on the way forward where the recall is concerned. We were unable to get a comment from the P.U.P. on the discussion today, but we are reliably informed that the party has decided to seek a judicial review of the decision by the Elections and Boundaries Department. We note that at the briefing by the Elections and Boundaries Department today, Chief Elections Officer Josephine Tamai confirmed that no petition for the recall of a member under the Act shall be presented more than once in the same division in any parliamentary term.

    They should have had those signatures vetted by reputable international organizations. I am sure we will see the Super-Lawyers (i.e. Lois, Denys, and Rodwell) running up the tax payers’ bills in court. Without outside intervention, I expect nothing honest to come out of our Kangaroo Courts.

    So did PUP throw the recall, or just fumble it?
    Do they know?

    All steam ahead, all corruption officers out of the trenches, time to squeeze the lime till the gold flows.

    Everybody else, coma time. nothing happened. The report if it ever gets released will say nothing happened, and if something did happen it was minor, and it has been fixed. All Good! Soon Eric the Change, Elvin, and McAfee will be back at cabinet. Let the fleecing renew, it is a new year!

    It is sad that the pup fumbled their effort. I hope a lesson was learned for future instances. You know when the pup people got on tv and said they were checking their signatures they must have gotten tired eventually snd let the ball drop. Next time they need to have a new team at the end with fresh eyes check the list before submitting. A lot of the errors could have been screened and their efforts be more fruitful. Sad for pup but a good exercise for belize. The prime minister should still try to clean up his govt though cause belize deserve better and all this just makes us look bad in the international arena. We have good hard working people who get mess up by the terrible image our govt causes.
