The end of Ivar Asjes as Prime Minister of Curaçao
WILLEMSTAD – The Prime Minister of Curaçao, Ivar Asjes, must resign. This is after he lost the support of his faction in parliament and his political party Pueblo Soberano (PS).
According to the PS there is no crisis in the government. “The government did not fall. We want that to be clear,” said the board of the party in a message to the media. The problems between the party and the Prime Minister had risen so high that the party gave Asjes the ultimatum to resign within 24 hours and to clean up his office.
At 13.00 there was an extraordinary meeting of the Council of Ministers, which was requested by Asjes. Probably the Minister of Public Health, Ben Whiteman will temporarily resume the premiership.
