Did You Know? The Corozal United Front (CUF) was a short-lived political party active in Corozal District, Belize, in the 1970s. Shortly after its founding, the party won a municipal election in Corozal Town, defeating the established People's United Party there for the first time. In conjunction with the newly formed United Democratic Party, the CUF fielded candidates in the 1974 Belizean general election but failed to win any seats in the Belize House. After the 1974 election, the CUF was absorbed by the UDP.

Wed, 7 Mar 2018 — Municipal Elections

If you are entitled to vote in Municipal Elections in Belize, be sure to come out on March 7th. It’s your civic duty.

For election information, go to the Elections website. http://www.elections.gov.bz/
Belize is divided into 31 electoral districts or constituencies, each represented by one member in the House of representatives. Belize's constituencies are divided in such a way that their voting population is as equal as possible to each other ensuring, theoretically, that resources are equally shared among the country's citizens, as required by the constitution. After the 2003 General Elections, two additional constituencies were created from territory of existing constituencies in order to further ensure the equality of the voting populations among the constituencies. Coming out of January 2008, the most populous constituency (Stann Creek West) had a voting population of 7,085 while the least populous constituency (Fort George) had a vo…

For several weeks I have been recording on the construction taking place along a roundabout near the Santa Rita area of Corozal Town. Belize Scoop has confirmed that this Corozal Round About will be completed this Friday. Yes, it looks like it is completed right now, but some additional things will be added to the Round About.  It has a Mayan Head Sculpture, 4 Mayan stones, 4 walkways towards the Jade Head one that is only steps and Brown Stones that are squared around the Roundabout. This Roundabout is to attract Tourism in the Country when they are coming to visit the town. And, to show that Belize has a very strong Mayan culture. But, how about adding the word "Corozal"? This will show the town its representation of Corozal.  The Locals wants more scenery and a better look. This News is from CTV 3 News received unconfirmed but reliable reports that the contract for the project was given to a contractor from all the way in Succotz, Benque Viejo Del Carmen. We understand a…
