Turmoil around appointment wife Asjes

Premier AsjesWILLEMSTAD - The Government puts pressure with the appointment of the wife of Prime Minister Ivar Asjes. She was nominated to the post of Commissioner at the Curacao Tourism Development Foundation (CTDF). This appointment is in direct violation with the code of good governance, because the wife of the Prime Minister also works for the Government.

Minister of Tourism for the coalition party PAIS, Stanley Palm is certain that Tara Asjes-Prince is professional enough to separate the different ‘hats’ she wears. In the social media, various member of Palm’s own party have reacted with disgust about this decision. Most of them do not agree with the appointment of Mrs. Asjes-Prince as a commissioner at CTDF.

This decision could bring the coalition in jeopardy, according to one of the members of PAIS.
