Since Prime Minister Dean Barrow made the announcement that General Elections may be as early as this year, the Opposition People’s United Party (PUP) has hit the ground running with plans to recapture Belmopan.

The latest move by the Opposition came on Saturday, at a National Party Council where the PUP approved two major resolutions.

The first demanded a fixed term of four years for all future national governments. The resolution says the PUP will pass legislation for a four-year term when it comes to power.

The PUP also wants to end the practice of giving out nationality certificates.

The National Party Council passed a resolution stating: “Be it resolved that the People’s United Party will pass a law to stop the issuance of nationality certificates three months before national and municipal elections.”

The PUP also plans to appoint an independent commission to review immigration policy and laws.
