Constitutional Amendments endorsed by Senate majority in Belize

On August 28, 2008, the Belize Constitution 6th Amendment Bill got the majority approval in the Senate – 9 out of 10 Senators present at the voting were in favor of the bill, while just 1 PUP Opposition member rejected the bill.

When the amendment to the Constitution becomes law, a new Senator would be appointed, and majority control of the Senate will be passed to the Opposition and the non-Government senators. The new Senator will come from the community of non-governmental organizations in Belize.
