Clarification - You'll see "San Pedro" listed on the Village Counsel elections roster. This does not refer to San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye. It refers to San Pedro Village on the mainland.

After 5 weeks of village council elections, PUP say they have won more seats than UDP

Hundreds of seats needed to be filled to begin the new 3-year term of the village councils across the length and breadth of Belize, and the two main political parties fielded hundreds of village council candidates and prospective chairmen, as they went head to head, each fighting to come out on top.

In the past, village council elections were hardly politicized, but in today’s world, politics have entered the village council electoral process, and the outcome of these elections is used as a barometer to measure a party’s popularity. In this year’s village council elections, however, a number of villagers preferred to elect independent slates, bypassing the candidates of the two main political parties.

Eighteen villages across the country voted for independent candidates and 124 independent candidates were elected.

In the main battle between the two parties, the PUP and the UDP, the PUP, in a press release issued today, Monday, July 29, have claimed victory in the village council elections.

The PUP press release puts the party’s village council victories at 97 villages while they reported that the UDP won 75 villages.

Out of those 97 villages which voted for PUP councils, the party said it got 690 seats compared to the UDP, which reportedly got 507 seats in 75 villages.

In the last round of balloting for the village council elections which took place yesterday, Sunday, the UDP and the PUP battled in the Cayo District over the final 5 villages to hold elections. When it was over, the UDP finished on top, winning 3 out of the 5 villages.

In several of the villages, PUP chairmen were selected by villagers to replace UDP chairmen as head of the councils, but the UDP won the majority of council seats. This scenario means that in villages where the two parties share control of the village council, they have to find common ground to work together for the benefit of their villages.

Both PUP and UDP Claim Village Council Dominance

The village council elections finished over the past weekend in Cayo - and both the PUP and the UDP are claiming to have won a majority of the more than one thousand available seats.

Now, the thing is, village councils are not supposed to be overtly political - and many times, persons who may be loyal to the blue or red run as independents on mixed slates. This is due to family and community ties in those villages, which sometimes transcend political tribalism.

But, the tribes have spoken, and the PUP said yesterday that it won the majority of the councils in 97 villages to the UDP's 75, and 690 seats compared to the UDP's 507.

The UDP Jon the other hand says, the PUP have the math all wrong the ruling party said that of the 1,323 seats being contested the UDP won the majority of 629 seats as compared to 625 seats won by the Opposition.
