OASThe Organization of American States will observe the General Elections in Belize. According to a release from the OAS they will send an Election Observation Mission based on an agreement signed on October 26th by the hemispheric Organization and the Government of Belize.

During the signing Luis Almagro, the OAS Secretary General, stated that and we quote “On October 25, the OAS will be deploying EOMs in Colombia, Guatemala, and Haiti. A few days later, it will be sending a mission to the legislative elections in Paraguay, and it is possible that there could be additional ones before year end, particularly in the Caribbean where the OAS has observed elections in all countries, except Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.”

We understand this is the second time that the OAS will deploy an Election Observation Mission to Belize, after the 2012 general and municipal elections. In addition to the electoral process itself, the Mission will pay particular attention to political financing, electoral organization, and gender equity.

The Chairman of the OAS Permanent Council and Permanent Representative of Venezuela to the Organization, Roy Chaderton, participated in the ceremony, which took place at OAS headquarters in Washington, D.C. Also present at the ceremony were the representatives of the missions of Mexico and Canada”.
