Nadia Caliz is New B.N.T.U. National President

The Belize National Teachers’ Union held its bi-election to elect a new national president. Voting began at around two-thirty this afternoon and was completed by four-thirty. Following the counting, Nadia Caliz emerged as victor, besting Ifasini Efuneymi. We spoke with Caliz about her candidature.


Nadia Caliz, President Candidate, B.N.T.U.

I have been paying attention to the direction our union has been taking and that is not the direction our union should be going and I believe that those of us who are stalwarts understand what BNTU represents to this country. We need it to come back and put us back on the platform where we were. And, being a member for thirty years and serving as rep, school rep, vice president, member of council , being in the forefront of many demonstrations, I have the experience. So I said, let me come forward. I said let me come forward and offer myself and see if they would accept me as their president. So I am waiting to see the results and if that is it then we are ready.”
