Gijsbertha starts today with the information rounds

Governor's palaceWILLEMSTAD – ‘Informateur’ Kenneth Gijsbertha begins today with his meetings with the political parties elected to the Parliament of Curaçao and the social partners. He wants to know much support there is for the formation of a new coalition government.

Gijsbertha has been asked by the Governor of Curaçao H.E. Mrs. Lucille George-Wout to explore any government coalitions possible on the basis of the election held on October 5. Gijsbertha expects to complete the first round of information today.

If it is necessary, there will be a second round of talks on Saturday. On Sunday, Gijsbertha wants to provide a first interim report to the Governor. His final report should be presented to the Governor on October 25th.

The Governor gave the ‘informateur’ a number of important issues that have priority in the coming government term. Issues such as education, the problems within the health sector and in particular the completion of the construction of the new hospital, improving safety on the island, and to promote economic growth and sound finances.

Gijsbertha will consult the parties in the order of obtained number of votes received in the elections, starting with the blue party MAN headed by Hensley Koeiman.
