Governor informs Prime Minister

WILLEMSTAD - The impasse in the Curaçao Parliament, whereby the president of parliament did not give the political parties enough space to discuss the situation is against the spirit of parliamentary democracy.

This is what Governor Frits Goedgedrag has noted in his letter to Prime Minister Gerrit Schotte in which he send Schotte’s cabinet home immediately.

Based on the basic principles of democracy and good governance the Governor has appointed a formateur to form an interim government. The interim government will have a few important assignments namely:

  • Prepare for upcoming Parliament elections
  • Restore democracy back in Parliament and restore relations in the Kingdom
  • Attend to the financial situation of the island
  • Prepare measures to screen each candidate minister after elections

According to reports, demissionary Prime Minister is refusing to step down. He announces that on Wednesday they will have a Council of Ministers meeting to assess the situation and see what will happen next.
