Frowning Dutch MPs on motion passed in Curaçao Parliament

Roelof+van+LaarWILLEMSTAD - The Dutch political parties PvdA and VVD have their reservations about the motions which was adopted yesterday by the Parliament of Curaçao and especially the proposal that should limit the involvement of the governor in the appointment of ministers. MPs of the two coalition parties believe that the parliament of Curaçao should better spend their time combatting corruption and fraud.

“I have not seen the motion, but ultimately Curaçao must decide whether they want to change the Constitution, although there is a two-thirds majority required for this change,” said the PvdA MP Roelof van Laar.

“The motion is linked, of course, to the instruction given to St. Maarten and it gives the impression that the Curaçao MPs want persons who are guilty of fraud to become prime minister. That's a shame. That energy could probably be spent in a better way,” said Van Laar.
