Vision Inspired by the People (VIP) is a political party in the Cayo District of Belize.





Vision Inspired by the People or VIP is a political party established in December 2005 in the Cayo District of Belize. It contested municipal elections in the capital city of Belmopan on March 1, 2006, receiving 20% of votes cast but none of the seven seats.


General election preparations

VIP announced in January 2007 that they have selected several candidates for general elections in 2008. Tentative candidates include leader Paul Morgan, Bobby Lopez, Hubert Enriquez, Patrick Rogers, Mateo Polanco and Max Cho. A later addition was Erwin X (Jones) in Port Loyola. The VIP has been contributing to the discussion in Belize ahead of general elections.


On March 1, the electorate voted and the VIP did not win any of the seven seats up for election in Belmopan; the UDP won all seven en route to a 64-3 victory. Post-election, analysts congratulated the VIP for their courage in participating and said their lack of success was mostly due to a low budget, inexperience in campaign management, image management and Belmopan voters' apathy (few PUP's came out to vote as a sign of discontent with the Musa administration).


There has been speculation about what role the VIP will play, if any, in the 2008 general elections and any other upcoming elections. VIP recently made an appearance on national television to say that they will more than likely participate in general elections in 2008 and inviting Belizeans not just in Belmopan, but across the nation to join them.
