It would appear to be just any normal holiday as banks and schools are closed, however, this is no ‘normal’ day in Caye Caulker! Today is the day when we get to exercise democracy by marking a big cross by the name of the person that you feel best represents you and our wonderful country of Belize – yes it is election day!!
This blog wishes to be non-partisan as who wants to hear some political rant from Raggamuffin’s HQ – however,the energy on the street today requires you to draw your line in the sand and take your side – red or blue, which one are you?
Notably, by the time this blog has been written, Patti Arceo the PUP candidate was here on Caye Caulker, very much making her presence known here on the island – something that islanders here in Caye Caulker know and love her for as historically she has been both friend and Area Rep for Caye Caulker.
As for the UDP, a more subdued support for the Hon Manuel Heredia, current representative of Belize Rural South and indeed our Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation – but that could be a reflection of those Villagers beliefs that little has been done for Caye Caulker in his four year reign.
Within hours we will have the results for this area and indeed for the country – and for some it will be a relief as tomorrow it will all be over!
