The members and supporters of the People’s United Party (PUP) elected a new executive for the Belize Rural South electoral division. The process was carried out on Sunday September 8th on Ambergris Caye at the PUP office located on Pelican Street. Supervising the election was Sharol Saldivar from the PUP National Executive.

Leading up to the election, the PUP had advertised a vacancy to fill the various positions at the local level. Former Chairman of the Belize Rural South PUP Executive, Milo Paz had stepped down giving way for a new Party Chairman. Close to 50 people showed up to the event and in a matter of a few minutes, 11 people were nominated to fill the various positions. Because there were no other nominations, the names were endorsed and accepted by the general membership that was present.
