Only the people can opt for independence

WILLEMSTAD - The position of PAIS on the autonomous status is clear. It is not for a political party to implement a constitutional change - such as independence, but that is a choice only and directly by made by the population.

The choice of the people would have to be made known through a referendum. PAIS also stands for a turnout based on a agreed minimum. Any changes which should be applied must carry the approval of two thirds of the voters.
