The Elections and Boundaries Commission has ratified a plan to change the boundaries of the Belize Rural South District. According to Chief Elections Officer, Urban Reyes, "All mainland that was part of the Belize Rural South is now removed from that district and is a part of Belize Rural Central." This particularly affects the mainland villages of Lords Bank and Gales Point. The Belize Rural South District now includes all the cayes as far south as Colson Caye and also encompasses Turneffe and Glover's Reef.
Following the ratification of the plan by the Commissioners, a legal description of the district will be attached by the Ministry of Natural Resources. The plan will then be presented to the Minister of Home Affairs who will present it to the Clerk of the House and instruct the Clerk to notify the members of the House. The plan will be placed on the agenda of the House and will then be discussed and approved.
