The People's National Party of Belize is a political movement headquartered in Punta Gorda, Toledo District, Belize. Operating primarily in southern Belize, the party fielded candidates in the 2008 and 2012 general elections. It held its first meeting on Monday, 19 February 2007 in San Antonio Village, Toledo District. As of April 2015 the PNP has yet to win a seat in the Belize House or a municipal election at the city or town level, however PNP members have served on village councils.
The party leader is Wil Maheia, who is a consultant in farming, tourism and the environment. Maheia stood in the Toledo East constituency in the 2008 and 2012 elections. The PNP ran seven candidates in 2012, but failed to crack six percent of the vote in any race.
The PNP's platform is anti-corruption and favours campaign finance reform as well as increased local control in Belizean government. The party strongly opposes making any territorial concessions with respect to the ongoing Belizean–Guatemalan territorial dispute.
National Belizean Alliance
The PNP joined a coalition of third parties contesting the 2008 general elections, known as the National Belizean Alliance (NBA). The NBA elected Maheia as leader.
