Listen, Learn, Prepare, and Serve…LEAD!

The People’s Declaration is the definitive historic document that emerged from the many months of consultations across the thirty one constituencies of Belize. The Party Leader and Leader of the Opposition Hon John Briceño held a listening tour, the first of its kind, in order to get a clear picture of the wishes of the Belizean people in regards to taking the unfounded Guatemalan claim on Belize to the ICJ. The concept of the Listening Tour 2018 continues to baffle many. That a leader would venture out to meet people outside of the election time campaign season is almost unheard of in Belize. That any leader would do so with the sole expressed purpose of listening and learning the concerns of Belizeans had happened only under the stewardship of Rt. Hon George Cadle Price.

The declaration makes several demands such as a more balanced education campaign as opposed to the clearly and unapologetically biased Yes campaign the funds are being used for at this time. It proposes amendments of the Referendum Act, Maritime areas Act and the Representation of the People Act. The document makes mention of the gross political interference and mismanagement at the Vital Statistics office. The back log there causes severe impediments in the registration process and can result in the disenfranchisement of a significant number of legitimate voters. It also seeks the removal of the current Foreign M. This demand seems the most likely to be achieved since the current GOB already appears to be distancing itself from Hon Wilfred Erlington.

The People’s United Party was founded on the maxim “Serve the People” this is precisely what Hon John Briceño seeks to do. Arthur Ward said “We must be silent before we can listen, we must listen before we learn. We must learn before we can prepare. We must prepare before we can serve. We must serve before we can lead.” Some people favour a more old fashioned autocratic leadership style where decisions are taken at the top and there is no consultation. That style of leadership works best where there is no confidence in the ability and competence of team players.

In the PUP however, we have every confidence in our #PUPTEAM31. Our Leader values and craves the input of candidates and constituency executives and the Belizean people. Woodrow Wilson said that “The ear of the leader must ring with the voices of the people.” The voices of the people are clear. It must be Vote #NOICJ. There is zero confidence in this government and the Foreign Minister. The empty posturing and rhetoric continue by those who wish to instruct rather than educate. Those very same experts who wish to dictate never consult. Those experts have had their say…but on April 10th the Belizean people will have their way, vote NO to the ICJ!
