Opposition MP accuses President of Parliament of dictatorial behavior

Charles CooperWILLEMSTAD – In a letter addressed to the President of Parliament, Marcolino Franco, the MP for the opposition party, Charles Cooper, accuses the President of dictatorial behavior in the case of Independent MP, Marilyn Moses when she was appointed as a Chairman of Parlatino-committee.

Franco indicated to the Chairman of the Parlatino in a letter dated November 23 that Moses is no longer part of the coalition and that she has been replaced by another MP of the coalition party PAIS.

According to Cooper, the President of the Parliament must set a good example and should use the law as guidance. “The President unilaterally made the decision to remove the MP from two Parlatino-committees,” said Cooper in his letter.

“The MP says that his fraction considers this as an illegal action. It also shows a lack of respect for the rules of procedure and the rules of the Latin American Parliament,” said Cooper.
