Protest over voter registration took place in Belize

Peaceful Assembly

On 18th February 2019, a protest was organised by members of the People’s United Party (PUP) against the work carried out by Vital Statistics Unit. Protesters denounced the lack of efficiency of this institution which is in charge of issuing birth and death certificates. The delay issuing these documents has affected the registration of several citizens who will not be able to vote in the referendum in March 2019. The demonstration proceeded normally and no violations were reported.
