Remarks by the Party Leader National Party Council


Belize City, Saturday, 2nd February 2019

Today I want to begin by saying Thank you.

Thank you for your honesty, for your frankness and most important, for the respect you showed during our ICJ consultation.

Going across the country to listen, you strengthened my conviction that we are still the greatest political Party in this nation. You renewed our commitment to social justice and you proved that you are ready to fight for Belize. You have heard me say again and again that the People’s United Party has talented people with the right ideas to build this nation. This was reaffirmed during my listening tour when from villages in the south to the beaches of San Pedro; from Independence Hall to Crystal Palace you came out in large numbers and shared your concerns with me about the upcoming referendum.

The declaration you unanimously supported today is called the People’s Declaration because it came from you. You told me we needed more time. You told me Belizeans need more information. You told me the government was not doing enough to inform the people. You told me you did not like what the Foreign Minister was saying to the Belizean people.

You told me you wanted to see Guatemala respect our rights in the Sarstoon and you told me that until these and other concerns are addressed then we say NO to the ICJ.

During the tour I told you that our Party is more than just the leader; that the PUP is more than the executive and the standard bearers. I told you that the strength of our party comes from the thousands of Belizeans who march with us, who campaign with us, who fight with us, and the thousands of Belizeans who vote for us.

So today we have a declaration that was of the people, by the people and for the people. This is your declaration and this is your way of letting everyone know that you are the true owners of the PUP. So again thank you for being true to our PUP commitment to democracy.

This year as we get closer to that day when we will get rid of this corrupt, incompetent UDP government, we have to be in a state of readiness. We also have to keep up the pressure on the UDP, exposing their corruption and showing everyone what a worthless bunch they are.

So for us 2019 is a year of readiness and sustained resistance.

How do we resist?

We have to keep exposing their corruption; exposing their nepotism and cronyism. We have to tell people about their incompetence and expose all that is happening in the Ministry of Works, and in the Lands Department. Tell everyone that this UDP Government is the most corrupt and incompetent Government in the history of our nation. And tell everyone it is time for them to go.

NOW — How do we get ready?

First, all of us must work together to ensure that our PUP supporters who have not yet registered get registered. And our standard bearers have to make sure that all our people who registered appear on the voters list.

Second, we have to go into our communities and share our People’s Declaration with our neighbors and friends and on 10th April we need to get our people to the polls.

Third, all of us must get involved in the upcoming Village Council Elections. Whether you live in town or in the city, we want our PUP soldiers in the urban areas to join with our leaders and campaigners in the villages to help deliver victory for the PUP in the Village Council Elections.

Everywhere in Belize our job now is to get up and work to bring victory for the PUP because as Cordel said, when the PUP wins the people Win.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have to be ready to fight. We have to work together to develop a victory plan so that whenever Dean or whichever of his corrupt UDP standard bearers who become leader call the elections we will be ready to run them out of Belmopan.

The weapon we will fight the UDP with is the truth. Combined with hard work and dedication, our message is that the PUP is Ready!

We are Ready to Build Belize.
Ready to give our children a good education.
Ready to create good jobs for Belizeans
Ready to work together to help our people get better homes in which to live and to have access to decent health care.

We will make sure that our entrepreneurs get our economy moving again; creating new jobs so that our people can earn a decent living and we will increase the minimum wage because in a country as rich as ours no one should be begging in the streets; no one should be homeless and no one should feel hopeless.

We can do all these things because we have good people in Belize and we have good people in the PUP who are not afraid to work.

Our message is very clear, in the PUP we are about people. In the PUP we believe in helping those who need a hand up so they can take care of themselves. We are not going to Belmopan to create new millionaires, but let me tell you this; we are going to Belmopan to put those corrupt and dishonest UDP’s in jail. Any of them who have ripped us off and stolen from the Belizean people better understand that if you broke the law we are coming after you and if found guilty you will go to jail.

My friends, as I listened to you nothing was clearer than your desire to live in a better country. You said that you are tired of the corruption, tired of the crime and the violence and tired of Dean Barrow and the UDP. We are going to fix it all with hard work, good plans and ideas and zero tolerance on corruption.

So spread the word, the UPD days are numbered. Their day of reckoning is coming soon and when that day comes we in the PUP will work to make our country safe again!

February is known as the month of love and we all know that PUP da love, this is a part of our true blue philosophy.

We love this country and we love the Belizean people and that is why we are once again ready to restore hope to our people.

Ready to put things right again; to return our country to better days filled with progress and prosperity and we are ready to build a Belize that works for everyone.

Thank you, God bless you and your families and God bless Belize.
