The People’s United Party leader Francis Fonseca will step down from that position. The announcement was made by Fonseca himself today only hours after winning the Freetown division in Belize City. Even though he won his seat, the PUP’s loss at the polls yesterday marked Fonseca’s fourth consecutive loss at the polls as party leader in just one year. Fonseca spoke with the press today and here is what he had to say about his decision.

“Ladies and Gentlemen it has been my distinct, honor and privilege to lead the People’s United Party over the past four years, I think given the result of yesterday’s elections it is right and appropriate that I stand down as the leader of the People’s United Party, I do not intend to do so immediately certainly I want to make sure there is an orderly transition, so I will advise the chairman of the party  to ensure what we put in place the structure to ensure that that smooth transition takes place over the next few weeks, we will of course have to meet as a party with the National Executive to discuss that transition process in compliance with the Constitution of our party so that the party can in fact prepare itself for election of a new leader, on a note of personal privilege if you allow me I certainly want to thank the wonderful people of Freetown for their unwavering support for four consecutive general elections, I have been continued to be humbled by their love and support, I am a very young man but this have been my last election, I am still in my 40’s but I think I have to find another way to contribute to the development of Belize and I will of course serve up my term working for the people of Freetown but I do not intend to seek reelection.”


There are still no official decisions made as to who may rise to the PUP’s leadership.
