Governor starts conversation rounds

WILLEMSTAD - Governor Frits Goedgedrag started holding conversations to explore the possibility to form an interim government , after Vice President of Parliament Anthony Godett handed him ten motions of no confidence against current government. Godett has, on behalf of eleven members of the new Parliament, requested the immediate dismissal of almost all ministers.

With the exception of the Minister of Social Development, Labour and Welfare, Hensley Koeiman and the Minister of Administration, Planning and Services, Carlos Trinidad the new Parliament wants the whole government to leave. Then there must be an interim government formed, possibly with Trinidad and Koeiman.

Since the eleven members of Parliament have requested the Governor to appoint someone to form a government, has Goedgedrag started conversations with this in mind. The Vice-Chairman of the Advisory Board, Carl Grüning, former President of Parliament  Ivar Asjes, President of the new Parliament Dean Rozier, the Parliament leaders and Prime Minister Gerrit Schotte are on the list of those who will talk with the Governor. Demissionary Premier Schotte said in a national speech last night that he will not comply with the motions, which were handed to him by the Governor.

A new Parliament formed by the majority of Parliament has adopted 10 motions of no confidence against the Government. The parliamentarians feel that President Ivar Asjes' exhibits dictatorial behavior and therefore have scheduled their own meetings. The twelve MPs form a majority in the 21-member parliament.
