Vision Inspired by the People (VIP)

Vision Inspired by the People (VIP) is a political party established in December 2005 in the Cayo District of Belize. It first contested municipal elections in the capital city of Belmopan on 1 March 2006, receiving 20 percent of votes cast but none of the seven seats. VIP operates primarily in Belmopan, but also has a presence in the Belize and Corozal Districts.

Along with the People's National Party, VIP is one of two minor parties which contested both the most recent Belizean general and municipal elections. It has yet to win a seat in the Belize House or a municipal election at the city or town level. In 2015 many VIP members joined the newly-formed Belize Progressive Party, however VIP continues to function as a separate entity.

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.

In recent years VIP has maintained an informal alliance with the People's National Party, with which it shares similar anti-corruption stances.

In 2012, VIP nominated candidates for the Belize House in the Belize Rural South and Corozal Bay constituencies, but was not a factor in either election.

In the 2015 municipal elections, VIP candidate Hubert Enriquez finished third in a five-way mayoral race in Belmopan. VIP also ran other municipal candidates in Belmopan and San Pedro Town.
