A Giant in Toledo West
Oscar Requeña may be small in stature, but he is a giant of a man in the communities of Toledo West, and in the House of Representatives where he is the loud and powerful voice of the people. He is dynamic, visionary and understands development and service, and that is why he has been the representative of the people since 2012.
Oscar graduated from the Toledo Community College and went on to the Belize Teacher’s College where he earned distinction as a trained teacher and Principal. He attained his Bachelor’s Degree in Primary Education from the University of Belize and has dedicated his life in the education of his people of rural Toledo. He has been a teacher and Principal for nine years and has been the Curriculum Officer and District Education Officer as well as the Vice Principal of the Big Falls R.C. School.
Through his work in the rural communities, and the neglect he witnessed, Oscar saw the need for better representation of the people on a political level, and he became the Area Representative in 2012. He has continued to work for his people and for the Party and is a valued member of the national executive.
He is committed to creating a constituency where the people are empowered through job opportunities, low interest capital for investment in areas they see relevant to their social, economic and environmental development. Because of his lifelong passion for education, he has placed priority on providing equitable educational opportunities to relevant education in line with national priority areas.
Because this giant of a representative is committed, qualified and serious about service of the people, he is the only choice for Toledo West.
