Regulation on administrative conflicts within Kingdom
WILLEMSTAD - There needs to be a mechanism by which future disagreements between the countries of the kingdom can be solved. That delegations from the parliaments of the Netherlands, Curaçao, Aruba and St. Maarten decided that last Friday after a week of meetings in Aruba.
Agreeing with the decision is already a positive development.
A committee must work out now on such an arrangement, but only agreeing to it is important, said Labor MP Jeroen Recourt, who led the Dutch delegation. The actual introduction of such agreement is in the hands of governments.
The Caribbean countries within the kingdom have repeatedly objected to the instructions that were imposed by the Kingdom Council of Ministers. This was also the case against the measures against the government Schotte in 2012.
The past year Aruba got instructions from the Kingdom as to their budget and Sint Maarten due to problems with the reliability of politicians.
Later, the parties may submit their objections to an independent body.
