Bitorina resigns as Minister

bitorinaWILLEMSTAD – Minister of Education, Culture and Sport Rubia Bitorina will resign soon. She has discussed this with her ​​party Pueblo Soberano (PS) which now started the procedure to look for a successor.

According to the Minister, she does not feel at ease in politics. “In politics you have to turn beat around the bush too much, I'm can’t. I'm very direct,” said Bitorina. Bitorina presented her thoughts a few weeks ago to the leaders of her party. According to the party president, Melvin Cijntje, the Minister had a week to rethink her decision, but she did not. Last Tuesday, Bitorina indicated that she reconsidered her decision, but the party had already begun with a search of a successor.

Bitorina probably will step down as Minister at the end of August.
