Decision to cancel elections could not have been made later
WILLEMSTAD – The decision was made on Thursday to cancel the election came from the Chairman of the Supreme Electoral Council (CES), Raymond Römer. The chairman declared that it was never his intention to wait until Friday morning to make a decision whether the election would continue on that day or not.
He made this decision on behalf of the Prime Minister of Curaçao, Dr. Bernhard Whiteman. Römer argued that all the polling stations were already busy on Thursday with the physical preparation and that is why the decision could not have been taken later.
The elections are now scheduled for Wednesday, October 5.
