Franco: “Unlikely that Wiels will speak before parliament”
WILLEMSTAD - The probability that the Minister Plenipotentiary in The Hague Marvelyne Wiels will speak during the debate about her performance in the Curaçao House is small. This is according to the President of Parliament Marcoline Franco.
The only choice is that if a majority of the Members of Parliament agree to a request from the Prime Minister Bernhard Whiteman. “Only then can the Minister Plenipotentiary speak,” said Franco.
Wiels announced on the radio that she will speak during the debate. But according to sources close to the government, the Prime Minister has not made that request. The debate is scheduled for the week of August 15.
According to the Independent Member of Parliament Omayra Leeflang, Marvelyne Wiels is welcome in parliament but only in the public tribune. The MP does not want Wiels to speak to parliament.
The MPs will debate the report published by the Government Accountants Bureau on the mismanagement of the Minister Plenipotentiary in the Curaçao House. The report was truly devastating for the Minister in The Hague. The Curaçao House falls directly under the Prime Minister and he is accountable before parliament.
