Dutch political parties VVD and PvdA want to keep the last word
WILLEMSTAD, THE HAGUE - About two weeks ago during the Kingdom Interparliamentary Conference in Aruba were the delegations of Curacao, Aruba, St. Maarten and the Netherlands agreed that a dispute agreement should come as soon as possible as a solution to the internal conflicts between the countries of the Kingdom.
The euphoria of the three islands with the achieved agreement was only for a short time, because the Netherlands still wants to keep the last word.
Fractions of government parties VVD and PvdA want to assure that whatever statement made by any future independent instate can be put aside by the Netherlands.
VVD MP André Bosman indicated that his party will never accept an arrangement whereby the others get more say than the Netherlands. He believes that it should be possible for the Netherlands to intervene at all times though.
The members of the delegation that participated in the Interparliamentary Conference were not available for comments.
