Belize PM Barrow seeks third straight term

Thursday, November 5, 2015

Belize voted in an early election on Wednesday in which Prime Minister Dean Barrow hopes to secure a record third consecutive term.

Barrow, a 64-year-old lawyer, called the vote in late September more than a year ahead of schedule amid signs his political opponents are regrouping and fears generous Venezuelan aid crucial to his budget may be at risk.
