The forthcoming General Election in Belize—formerly British Honduras—will be conducted in accordance with the Representation of the People Ordinance (Chapter 4 of the Laws of208W Belize). The schedule to this ordinance sets out the regulations providing for the registration of voters and the conduct of elections of elected Members of the Legislative Assembly of Belize, thereby ensuring fairness in the operation of the electoral system in Belize.
