Curaçao government scores very negative with parliament
WILLEMSTAD - In the period from early January to late April of this year, members of parliament have sent a total of 55 letters with questions to the government. Only 15 of these letters has so far been answered. This emerges from a survey that was sent by the President of Parliament, Marcolino Franco to Prime Minister Ivar Asjes.
The survey is the result of the protocol signed by Franco and Asjes in August last year. In the framework of this agreement, Franco sends every three months a summary of the questions to the government, the responses received and the remaining questions to each ministry.
In the protocol, the parties agreed that questions must be answered within two months. If not, then the ministers should let parliament know in writing why they could not answer these questions and when this will happen.
As shown in the previous survey, most answers came from Prime Minister Asjes. Almost half of the responses came from him. The minister, in charge of the portfolio of General Affairs and External Relations, has seven answered letters to his name.
Next is his colleague Irene Dick of Education, Science, Culture and Sports (OWCS) with four answers.
The remaining answers are from Jardim of Finance with two, Nelson Navarro of Justice and Ruthmilda Larmonie Cecilia of Social Development, Labor and Welfare with both one answered question.
