Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Press Release – People’s United Party – November 28, 2011 – At a meeting of the National Executive of the People’s United Party held on Friday November 18, 2011 the following Policy Positions were tabled, debated and adopted:

1) Nationalization: BWSL, BTL and BEL:
A People’s United Party Government will maintain the status of BTL, BEL and BWSL as majority state owned and controlled public companies. We support the principle of fair and prompt compensation in respect of Government’s Nationalization of BTL and BEL.

The People’s United Party does not support the efforts of the Human Dignity Trust and UNIBAM to strike down or amend S.53 of the Criminal Code of Belize. We recognize and appreciate the cultural, moral, spiritual and human dignity considerations attached to this issue and call on all sides in this debate to be guided by the principles of respect and tolerance.

3) Offshore Oil Exploration:
The People’s United Party supports a Moratorium on Offshore Oil Exploration. We must ensure that a comprehensive and effective regulatory framework is in place in respect of any and all oil exploration in Belize. Oil is a non-renewable resource which must be managed in such a manner to ensure the maximum benefit to Belize’s growth and development.
