The latest on the recall petition

Francis Fonseca

The P.U.P. last week held a fiery and upstart press conference where leader Francis Fonseca and other outspoken members of the party lashed out. The focus of the attack was the government of Belize, and particularly the elections and Boundaries Office. The P.U.P.’s petition to recall Elvin Penner was derailed after three hundred and thirty-seven signatures were rejected as invalid. The party was furious, and after the requisite venting, immediately initiated a scrutinizing process with a view to seeking judicial review of the decision by the Elections and Boundaries office. Today Party Leader Francis Fonseca told News Five that they are well on their way to making use of their legal options.

“The lawyers have done a lot of work in the one week. All the work that has taken place has been legal work. The draft papers have been prepared, and that is being vetted and reviewed by another team of lawyers. And then we will file, I believe they have said to me that we will file sometime in the last week of January.”


In a non-contested convention over the weekend, the P.U.P. endorsed political officer Orlando Habet as their standard bearer in Cayo Northeast.

    Dean Barrow et al have layed down the gauntlet on this one. I hope this one does not disappear quietly like the others. It’s time for the old timid ways of Said Musa to disappear, the timid conciliatory attitude, the one that has given the UDP a blank cheque to do what they want. We are fed up of the arrogant attitude of this administration and it’s leader. The time has come to turn things up on them. We are way overdue! It doesn’t matter how many thugs Boots, Barrow, and Finnegan have on the South Side. We are willing to take them all on. Let’s do it today rather than tomorrow when it’s too late!

    Ali has been practicing his black magic BS for years, he is Belize’s finest lawyer, the greatest firm Belize has to offer.

    Francis you need bigger posters of your self. If you are not a lawyer become one, your shadows will be bigger and wages a great dream. More depth in a small world of barracudas.

    >>>“The lawyers have done a lot of work in the one week.
    perhaps Shakespeare was correct, the lawyers are the problem.

    As usual in belize this will end up nowhere but i think it will be a good exercise to rev up the opposition who should be speaking out against the govt anyway plus the country will learn a thing or two in the process.
