Parliamentary democracy restored in Curacao

WILLEMSTAD -  The days are back where government is accountable to its people through parliament. On October 3, 2012, the interim government presented itself to the majority in parliament. One of the assignments given by the Governor to the interim government was to restore democracy and bring calmness into the political arena. Ministers Betrian, Smith, Bodock and Jardim were thanked and questioned by members of parliament and immediately gave answer to these questions, which is customary in a parliamentary democracy.

The meeting was called by the newly elected president of parliament Dean Rozier. According to our reports, the parliament clerk Mr. Cijntje did not attend the meeting, reason for this may include harassment by Ivar Asjes (former parliament president). The clerk was suspended and subsequently the Parliament appointed former clerk Mr. Frank Hanze as the temporary parliament clerk.

The 12 members of parliament were very satisfied with how the meeting went and expressed gratitude to the interim government for respecting the democratic rules of the country Curacao.
