Congratulations to the 13th Senator
The People’s United Party congratulates Osmany Salas, current President of the Belize Tourism Industry Association, on his election as the 13th Senator representing NGOs in the Upper House of the National Assembly.
Based on past experience, we are forced to note that Mr. Salas’ election is just one stage in a long-delayed appointment. It is now the Government’s responsibility, as committed, to accept that nomination and complete the process of swearing-in the NGO’s choice. Of concern is the fact that government’s political operatives, prior to the nomination today, were openly condemning the election and appointment of a 13th Senator. It would be detrimental to our democracy if government were to backtrack, again, at this point.
The People’s United Party is confident that Mr. Salas is able to discharge his duties as a Senator with integrity, objectivity, rationality and consideration for Belize and her people.
