Small chance of Asjes returning to politics after election 2016
WILLEMSTAD – The Prime Minister of Curaçao and member of the ruling party Pueblo Soberano (PS), Ivar Asjes will probably not be a candidate for another term in government for the next elections in 2016.
According to Asjes, he has done what the former political leader of his party has asked him to do, which is to serve his country and his party. “And seeing how politics has become, I don’t think I will be a candidate,” said the Prime Minister during the recent press conference of the Council of Ministers.
Asjes was sworn in as Prime Minister on June 7, 2013 by Acting Governor Adèle van der Pluijm-Vrede.
