Opposition leader removed from parliamentary meeting
WILLEMSTAD – The leader of the opposition party MFK and former Prime Minister of Curaçao, Gerrit Schotte was removed today by the police from the parliamentary meeting.
The President of Parliament, Marcolino Franco decided to remove the opposition MP because of the way he criticized the President on the preparation for the meeting. Parliament was about to start debating on the vocational school FEFFIK.
Schotte indicated that Franco’s way of presiding over the meeting is undemocratic. Schotte did not stop with his dissertation until his microphone was turned off. He received several warnings, but did not stop talking. He was then removed from the hall.
