Coalition could face another crisis

NavarroWILLEMSTAD – The Minister of Justice, Nelson Navarro is seriously considering resigning as Minister. Navarro indicated to the media today, in an extensive interview, that he has spoken to his party about this issue.

The Independent Member of Parliament, Glenn Sulvaran indicated earlier that Navarro’s project of the CCTV cameras could mean the end of the coalition. Sulvaran has even warned the coalition about this in a recent message on his personal Facebook page.

"I will do everything to keep this government together," Sulvaran said after a detailed explanation of how the project of the CCTV came about.

Coalition partner Pueblo Soberano (PS) and opposition parties MFK and MAN are against the manner in which this project came to be. There was no public tender and no transparency at all, according to the three parties. MKF stressed that they will not support the coalition party PAIS and its Minister of Justice to invest 6.2 million guilders from the government’s budget to finance this project.

According to our sources, two MPs from the coalition party PS are teaming up with the opposition parties MFK and MAN to vote against the Minister during the meeting on the CCTV cameras this coming Friday.

Minister Navarro also indicated during his interview that he cannot understand how he’s being questions by a Member of Parliament who is a suspect in a serious case, referring to Gerrit Schotte. “I can’t be part of this. This is not a clean democracy,” Navarro stated.
