The topic of Government’s proposed re-districting has become a hot-button issue because the Opposition and a number of social partners including the Belize National Teachers Union have called for the Elections and Boundaries to carry out the long overdue re-registration. The difference is that while one proposes to create new divisions to create a balance among constituencies, the other would clean up the voters list, which hasn’t seen a purge since the 90s.

As we said, the BNTU has called on re-registration before any re-districting exercise, and today President Luke Palacio indicated that they plan to take their argument to a proposed meeting with the Elections and Boundaries Commission.

“We have been asked by the Chairman of the Elections and Boundaries Commission, Mr. Dough Singh to meet with our council so that he can give us his side of the story on this matter and then we will determine how we proceed from there.”
