Dark clouds loom over coalition; Report Wiels divides coalition

Curacao HouseWILLEMSTAD – As was reported recently the fourth report on the functioning of the Minister Plenipotentiary in The Hague, Marvelyne Wiels was published by the Government Accountants Bureau (SOAB). This report threatens to split the coalition. This is according to the response of the coalition partners PAIS and PAR.

“There are dark clouds hanging over the government of Prime Minister Bernhard Whiteman,” said PAIS leader Alex Rosaria in a first reaction. PAIS has looked the other way when the three other reports were published, but this fourth one proves to be too much. The Prime Minister belongs to the same party as the Minister Plenipotentiary. Apparently, the report has been published months ago and Whiteman knew about the content.

PAR leader Zita Jesus-Leito stated that it is clear to her party that Wiels can no longer remain in office. There are two options for her party; Either Wiels resigns or she will be dismissed by Whiteman.

According to reliable sources, the Prime Minister does not want Wiels in the Curaçao House anymore, but it’s the party leader Jaime Cordoba who wants to keep her there.
