Minister of Education rebuked by her own party
WILLEMSTAD – The current Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport and a member of the ruling party Pueblo Soberano (PS), Irene Dick was forced to cancel the so called national dialogue on education. She had to do this at the urging of her own party.
The PS does not agree with the choice of the persons leading and guiding the dialogue. Initially, the Minister had chosen former Prime Minister, Stanley Bentrian and former rector of the Radulphus High School, Erich van der Hoeven as the moderators of the national dialogue. A first meeting already took place.
But the Minister was rebuked by her own party, which is known to sack their representatives in the government if there are any disagreements. According to the Independent MP, Omayra Leeflang, the Ministry of Education is not under guardianship of the Pueblo Soberano party.
