Belize's Prime Minister, Dean Barrow in Los Angeles, after the 1984 United Democratic Party (UDP) first general elections victory
After their first ever general elections victory in 1984, the United Democratic Party (UDP) government visited the Los Angeles Belizean Community in Los Angeles, California, at the invitation of Friends of The UDP, a powerful Belizean diaspora lobby organization that organized fundraising campaigns for the political party, and was an important player in the 1984 general elections victory of the Esquivel administration at that time.
The 1984 Belizean government Foreign Minister, Dean Barrow, with his clean cut persona and eloquent speeches, was no doubt an instrumental player in that first UDP victory, and continues today to drive the passion of the party, becoming its Prime Minister for two terms already, after winning his third straight consecutive general election win despite all the odds.
