Mp Emmanuel: I Will Not Be Deterred From Holding Government Accountable

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten — Independent Member of Parliament Christophe Emmanuel said that the non-answers and unclear answers provided at the recent budget 2021 leaves plenty room for much more questioning in the weeks ahead and stressed that he will continue holding government accountable.

I will not be deterred, the MP said pointing to the fact that consistency in holding government accountable has led to a possible payment of vacation pay, the truth about the vendors along Pondfill, some clarity and truth about governments financial position, legal basis or lack thereof outstanding police payments, massive over spending such as the Pretty Boy affair and blatant lies from a government foundation (SOG Stichting Overheids Gebouwen) that will be dealt with in due time.

The budget debate was an unsatisfactory back and forth with the government about a budget that has clearly shown the government’s dishonesty and lack of vision Read more

PHILIPSBURG:--- Independent Member of Parliament Christophe Emmanuel on Sunday said the lack of backup generators at the Princess Juliana International Airport (PJIA) compounds the embarrassing situation at the airport for visitors and residents alike, and called on government for an explanation as well as to divulge what its current actions are regarding the Holding Board of the airport (PJIAH).
The MP said on top of the airports inability to provide basic service such as electricity for the second straight week, it has come to his attention that government is reportedly about to change the members of the Holding Board which could lead to the appointee from the Schiphol Group heading the Supervisory Board of PJIAH.
The lack of information and communication, he said, remains an issue with the government who doesnt seem to understand or care that timely and truthful information benefits everyone and dispels rumors and innuendo Read more
