Elections and Boundaries Commission Chairman Speaks on Redistricting Exercise
The Elections and Boundaries Commission has until July 17, 2023, to produce a report on the redistricting exercise to the National Assembly. That report which will be tabled by the Chairman, Senior Counsel Oscar Sabido, will contain recommendations as to how the redivisioning exercise is to proceed. And that process is expected to eliminate malapportionment in the constituencies. For example, Stann Creek West has more than ten thousand registered voters but Mesopotamia has a little less than three thousand registered voters. So we asked Sabido what are the possibilities that two Belize City constituencies will become one. Here is his response.
