Pueblo Soberano wants Ministry of Finance

WILLEMSTAD – In a possible formation of a new government and to correct the 500 million deficit created by Schotte’s government, Pueblo Soberano (PS) must get the post of Minister of Finance according to Ivar Asjes.

This “gap”, which was created by Schotte and his government, must be corrected and that is the reason why PS must get that ministry, referring to the fact that someone with expertise in the financial field must be appointed to get Curacao out of the abyss.

Asjes uses the declaration of demissionary Minister of Kingdom Relations Liesbeth Spies, who declared that the former government headed by Schotte knowingly hid some information about the financial situation.

The Minister said in the Dutch Lower House that the new government will need at least 4 years to eliminate the deficit. “Do you understand now why PS needs to have that Ministry?” Asjes asked. “It is to put everything in order”, he added.

Asjes’ declaration is a contrast to what his former coalition partner, Charles Cooper declared to the media. Cooper said that there is enough cash and there is no question of deficit and surely not one as it has been portrayed by the Netherlands and the media.

Former Minister of Justice George Jamaloodin (MFK) has the same opinion as Cooper in a way that the financial situation is not well but it is being exaggerated by the interim government.
