Parliament debates on Consensus Laws

Curacao ParliamentWILLEMSTAD – The Parliament of Curacao will debate with Prime Minister Ivar Asjes on the status of the Consensus Statute Laws next week. This will be done in a public meeting that was requested by the opposition factions of MFK and MAN. The meeting is scheduled for next Thursday.

The meeting was requested by both opposition parties by letter of 7 April of this year.

With this meeting, both groups want the government to speak out on the decision of the Island Council of Curaçao from September 4, 2010.

The Island Council gave the mandate to the island government, formed by MFK, PS and MAN, to attend the final Round Table Conference (RTC) in the Netherlands. This decision stated that the Island Council instructs the government to come to a procedural agreement with the partners in the Kingdom. The council clearly states that the government had to come to a clear termination provision in the Consensus Statute Laws.

The fractions of MAN and MFK want to know whether the current government is still standing behind this decision.

The meeting starts at nine o'clock in the morning will be held in the renovated meeting hall of Parliament in Wilhelmina plaza.
