  • 1. People’s United Party Secretariat PRESS RELEASEMarch 25, 2013 PUP STATEMENT ON GUATEMALA’S PROPOSALSOn Sunday March 17, 2013 Guatemala put forward certain proposals that make clear itsintention to breach its agreement with Belize to hold simultaneous referenda on October 6, 2013.The People’s United Party (PUP) rejects any proposal which violates the spirit and letter of theSpecial Agreement signed by Belize and Guatemala in December 2008. Neither option proposedby Guatemala is acceptable. Guatemala’s latest proposals raise serious concerns about its goodfaith in finding a just and definitive solution of this longstanding claim.The PUP has consistently rejected this unfounded claim while always remaining supportive ofany initiative that would lead to a definitive and just solution.The PUP does not support the holding of any unilateral referendum on October 6, 2013, or onany other date. We do not support the amendment of our national law to reduce our thresholdparticipation in referenda, simply to accommodate Guatemala.The PUP calls on the Government of Belize to remain resolute in maintaining national andinternational support for our inalienable right to self-determination with full territorial integrity.Belize is for Belizeans…Long Live BELIZE!
