Stumbling block between PS and PAR was Minister Plenipotentiary
WILLEMSTAD – The first demand of the opposition party PAR was that the Minister Plenipotentiary in The Hague, Marvelyne Wiels must go. The ruling party Pueblo Soberano (PS) did not agree to this demand. “They also had difficulty in putting all our agreements in writing and sign it. That is why we didn’t want to talk anymore,” said the PAR representative, Stephen Walroud.
Gerrit Schotte, leader of the main opposition party MFK, has spent the past few days wondering about the turn of events. “When Dean Rozier on August 3, 2012 left the MFK we submitted our resignation immediately. This government received more time from the Governor, apparently democracy is rewritten depending on the parties that are there.” MFK indicated to be ready for the elections.
Since Tuesday, the Governor has talked to all the party leaders about the possibility of an early election.
Pueblo Soberano, the winner of the last elections, has one major problem. They don’t have a political leader. After the murder of their founder and leader, Helmin Wiels, they had a change of party board, the departure of several ministers and a Prime Minister. The party had a lot of stumbling blocks. “In December we will choose a new leader. I will remain in politics, but I’m not going to be the leader. My health does not permit me,” said Cijntje.
