Minister Spies (Netherlands) reacts on situation in Parliament

WILLEMSTAD - The indefinite suspension of Public Meetings of the Parliament is contrary to the Rules of Procedure of the Curacao Parliament.

That is according to Minister Spies who is in charge of Kingdom Relations. She also argues that there is no basis for such a decision in any other Ordinance. Mrs. Spies notes that this situation makes it impossible for the Parliament to make any budget modifications following the instructions received of the Kingdom Government. It would also mean that the Parliament loses their controlling power over the government. Mrs. Spies sees that situation from a democratic point of view and finds it a worrisome and undesirable situation.
