Hon. Elvin Penner
Cayo North East
Hon. Elvin Penner,
RESIGN OR BE RECALLED
I write on behalf of the people of Belize, and in particular, the people of the Cayo North East Division to DEMAND your immediate resignation as the Member for Cayo North East Division in the House of Representatives of Belize.
I am authorized by the National Executive of the People’s United Party to advise you that if you fail to resign as the member for Cayo North East by 5 p.m., Monday, October 7th, 2013, the People’s United Party along with the electors of that division, will initiate your RECALL as the Divisional Representative for the Cayo North East Electoral Division in accordance with the RECALL OF ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES ACT, No. 20 of 2010.
Our Party has carried out extensive consultations in every community in the Cayo North East Division over the past ten days and it is abundantly clear that you have lost the trust and confidence of those you represent and we therefore have a duty and an obligation to demand your resignation, and failing that, to pursue your Recall.
We trust that you will appreciate that it is in the best interest of the people of Cayo North East to have the earliest opportunity to elect a new Representative in fresh elections.
You have one last opportunity to put the interests of the people you represent ahead of that of the United Democratic Party.
The Belizean people, in particular the people of Cayo North East, await your response.
Francis W. Fonseca
Leader of the Opposition
