Dean Oliver Barrow (born 2 March 1951) was the Prime Minister of Belize. He was leader of the United Democratic Party. He started his first term as Prime Minister after victory in the 2008 Belizean general election, started his second term as Prime Minister after victory in the 2012 election and started his third term as Prime Minister after victory in the 2015 elections. Citing health issues, Barrow stated that he will step down no later than the end of 2019 but hinted he could do so earlier. An election to select the next Leader of the United Democratic Party and Barrow's successor is scheduled for May 2019 before the November 2020 Belizean general election. Orson Elrington
