PAIS in favor of transparency report

Alex RosariaWILLEMSTAD – During the recent central committee meeting of Parliament, the political party PAIS indicated that they are in favor of the execution of the recommendations brought forth in the Transparency International (TI) report.

TI recently published different recommendations which could make our country more transparent. This will contribute to a country based on integrity. Political leader Alex Rosaria reminded everyone that corruption creates poverty and it is the task of each MP to prevent this.

Furthermore Rosaria said that the role of politics in the integrity discussion is “walk the talk”. “Thus, if we are talking about integrity, our behavior must reflect this.” This is why the MP reminded his colleagues in Parliament that there are bill proposals to bring change in party financing, and to hold politicians accountable for their actions in Government. There are also proposals to fortify the screening process and to increase citizen’s participation in our democracy.

Rosaria warned that a country cannot become transparent from night to day. This process takes time. To start on the integrity road we have to realize that it is not recommended to solve all our problems at once. It is recommended to divide our problems in different sections, resolve them and take advantage of each small success and build upon them and bring confidence back to the people of Curacao.
