The People's United Party regrets to advise our thousands of supporters countrywide that as a result of the inclement weather, a decision has been made to postpone the National Convention & Rally planned for this Sunday in Belize City. A decision has been made to hold the Convention on Sunday, February 11, 2018.

This morning, following consultations with each of our Caucus leaders and with the forecaster on duty at the Belize Met Office, we were advised that many areas in the South and West are already experiencing worsening conditions as a result of incessant rains. We have been advised, also, that a flash flood warning will be issued by midday today for the entire country, and that the rains are expected to continue through Sunday.

It was not an easy decision, as our soldiers in every corner of this country had already prepared to mobilize to send a strong message to the United Democratic Party that change will soon be sweeping across the nation. On February 11, 2018, we will send that message, and on March 7, 2018 it will be hand-delivered and received.

We ask that Belizeans heed the warnings of the Met Service which will be issued and ensure that they stay safe and as dry as possible.
