Belize. According to Countryaah, the capital of Belize is Belmopan. Prime Minister Manuel Esquivel and his party United Democratic Party (UDP) lost the parliamentary elections on August 27. New government was formed instead by Said Musa, leader of the opposition party People’s United Party (PUP) with 26 out of 29 seats in parliament. The UDP is considered to have failed with its unemployment policy, and the party failed to win voter confidence despite tax exemptions for thousands of low-income earners and investment funds for infrastructure projects. For its part, Musa promised an economic activation program with job-creating measures, housing construction and the abolition of VAT.
