Pueblo Soberano MP’s: ‘Asjes becomes Prime Minister’

Pueblo SoberanoWILLEMSTAD – During the press conference organized by the five members of Parliament for the political party Pueblo Soberano, the MP’s declared that Ivar Asjes will become Prime Minister of Curacao according to the wishes of the late Helmin Wiels. They said that they couldn’t do anything else but resign from the party since the leadership did not want to fulfill Wiels’ last wish.

Asjes announced yesterday in a press release that this afternoon he will announce the candidates for the ministerial posts of 'Education, Science Culture and Sport', 'Social Affairs, Labour and Welfare' and 'Health, Environment and Nature' and Prime Minister. Asjes resigned as a member of Parliament a few days earlier to become Prime Minister of Curacao.

When asked whether Aliansa Sivil should be seen as a new party, Asjes could not give a clear answer. "You should actually ask the PS board. They have threatened with dismissal of all members who are now in this faction. We have only specified that we want to continue to walk the road that Wiels had mapped.

The PS members who have gathered in the Akshon Sivil are Jaime Cordoba, Melvin Cijntje, Rubia Bitorina (current Minister of Education), Marvelyne Wiels (Helmin Wiels’ sister), Bernard Whiteman (current Minister for Health), Ivar Asjes , Elmer Wilsoe, Jeanne-Marie Francisca, Sherwin Leonora and Winnie Raveneau.
