Pisas: “Elections will be postponed!”

Nieuwe regering Curacao aangetredenWILLEMSTAD – “The election of April 28 will be postponed. It will be postponed until the European Supreme Court has made a decision on the letter which was send by the interim government to stop the elections.” This is according to the new Prime Minister of Curaçao, Gilmar Pisas during his first speech as the head of the government.

Everyone was pending about what the new government will do with the election once it’s in power. The majority of twelve already announced several times that it will postpone or cancel the elections. After the Ministers were sworn in, the majority of 12 came out chanting; “Goodbye elections goodbye elections.”

Pisas requested everyone to wait patiently because during their first meeting the Council of Ministers will make a decision on the elections. That also took place as was announced by the Prime Minister.

Pisas in his speech said that there is a majority which means there is no reason for an election. “The majority is democracy. We have a majority in Parliament. This majority has now a government.”

The new Prime Minister also said that he wants to see the Governor sign the national decree postponing the elections. “We have reasons enough to postpone it. The Netherlands has said that elections are an internal affair and that we decide. We are going to hold on tight to that declaration,” said the new Prime Minister.
