Thode: ‘The Government, supported by the coalition of 11 in Parliament, still does not have a 2013 Program’

ThodeWILLEMSTAD – The first supplemental budget of 2013 was treated during a Central Committee meeting of Parliament this week.

The Central Committee meeting of Parliament is considered a meeting in which technical details are discussed and treated. This is exactly what the MFK’s faction came to do in the Central Committee meeting in the Parliament hall; ask straight questions to the Government of Curacao, without politicking. Serious questions to get clarity before treating the 2013 supplemental budget in a Public Meeting.

MFK’s faction, through the member of Parliament, Amerigo Thode, remarked that Parliament is discussing a budget of 1700 million guilders of the country without a Government Program from a Government supported by a coalition of eleven members of Parliament. Mr. Thode directed his remarks to the President of Parliament, Mr. Mike Franco and indicated that it is impossible to discuss a supplemental budget without a policy which indicates what will be done with the funds. With ‘policy’, Thode refers to a Government Program for the year 2013.

Mr. Thode had 31 questions in total for the Government, which according to him, are extremely important for the MFK faction so they can prepare themselves for the Public Meeting which will be held soon. For this reason the MFK faction hopes that the Government will answer their questions so that the MFK MP’s don’t have to ask them again during the Public Meeting on the 2013 supplemental budget.
