PAR, PNP and PS are still aiming on coalition of 12
WILLEMSTAD - The political party MAN leaves the door open to form a coalition with MFK and Kòrsou di Nos Tur. That is the conclusion of some insiders after the meeting yesterday between the four parties that signed a declaration indicating their willingness to form a government.
Although election winner MAN says it wants to form a coalition leaning on fourteen seats (two-thirds) in parliament, the party rules out the same time a collaboration with Marilyn Moses of the Movementu Progresivo.
In a press release, the MAN emphasizes that a coalition leaning on a two-thirds majority in parliament is needed to make changes to the Constitution. In addition, a two-thirds majority needed to work on the basis of inclusion, to ensure stability and peace and to get the country out of its current situation.
The other three parties, PAR, PNP and PS, with each 4, 2, and 2 seats respectively want to honor the declaration signed earlier. According to sources, the three want to form a coalition with election winner MAN without the support of Un Korsou Hustu of Omayra Leeflang and Movementu Progresivo. Both managed to gain a seat in parliament.
As was already announced, the PAR, PNP and PS do not want to form a coalition with MFK and Korsou di Nos Tur. The attitude of the MAN arouses irritation at the PAR, PNP and PS. They assumed that the declaration was a sign that a coalition of these four parties would be the first option. Only when the parties could not come together on portfolio allocation, they would talk to other parties. MAN’s position came therefore as a surprise.
