PAIS: ‘Politicians and Ministers should also contribute’

Curacao Government CenterWILLEMSTAD – The member of the current government coalition, PAIS, wants to propose a retrenchment of wage indexation, holiday pay and pension of politicians. PAIS also proposes a maximum reimbursement of telephone charges. The exact content of the proposal has not been published yet.

The party has indicated in recent weeks that each sector should make additional contributions to the society, in which they make reference to the government officials and civil servants.

According to party leader Alex Rosaria politicians should set an example and it is appropriate for this group to take a financial step back.


With this measure, the party wants to give a signal to society. Minister Etienne van der Horst will present the proposal to the Council of Ministers this coming Wednesday.
