Interim Premier Pisas: “The Netherlands is biased”
WILLEMSTAD - According to interim Prime Minister Gilmar Pisas, the Netherlands is clearly behind the political parties that are now in the opposition and against the current coalition, including the MFK of the former Prime Minister Gerrit Schotte and of which Pisas is a member.
“They do not want us and work against us,” said Pisa's in response to the decision of the National Council of Ministers to take the organization of the elections of April 28 out of the hands of the government.
Coalition partner Korsou di Nos Tur says that the decision of the Netherlands is a form of neo-colonialism. Minister Ruthmilda Larmonie Cecilia Pueblo Soberano, resigned in protest against what she believes is unwanted interference from the Netherlands.
The Kingdom Council of Ministers decided to seek urgent advice from the Council of State of the Kingdom on Friday after a proposal made by Minister Plasterk of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, Ronald Plasterk. The request is about the measures that can be taken to ensure that the elections on April 28 are fair and orderly.
The Kingdom Council of Ministers wants to place Curaçao under higher supervision and give the Governor the powers necessary to organize and hold the elections.
The interim government of Gilmar Pisas was sworn in last week Friday. The interim Prime Minister immediately announced that the elections will be postponed. A few days later, after heavy protest from the community and the refusal of the Governor to cooperate, the government withdrew their decision. According to Pisas, the government will fully contribute to ensure fair elections. He regrets the decision of the Kingdom Council of Ministers and says that it is quite unnecessary.
