Mp Wescot-Williams: Se Lo Dejamos A Ellos, Quienes Lo Crearon En Primer Lugar.

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – Nos hemos acostumbrado a una pequea bacanal cada temporada de carnaval, y me sent aliviada de que, excepto por algunas fallas aqu y all, no lo habamos hecho tan mal despus de una pausa de 2 aos, coment la parlamentaria en una reunin convocada apresuradamente a la que decidi no asistir.

Al recordar el manejo del presupuesto, la parlamentaria Wescot agreg que no podemos olvidar que la primera salva se dispar cuando una parte de la coalicin hizo una llamada enmienda insignificante al presupuesto del 2022 y coloc el subsidio del carnaval del Departamento de Turismo.

Sea como fuere, se llev a cabo el Carnaval, pero como ahora parece, no todo fue bien.

Recibimos una solicitud de la fundacin del Carnaval para una reunin pblica urgente para discutir temas pendientes, etc.

Elegir solicitar una reunin pblica en s mismo fue interesante ya que el formato de las reuniones con terceros generalmente lo determina la presidenta del parlamento Read more

~MP Wescot-Williams: We left it up to them who created it in the first place."~

 PHILIPSBURG:--- We have become accustomed to a little bacchanal every carnival season, and I was relieved that except for a few glitches here and there, we had not done too badly after a 2-year hiatus, the MP commented on a hastily-convened meeting, which she decided not to attend.

Recalling the budget handling, MP Wescot added that we cannot forget that the first salvo was fired when a part of the coalition made a so-called insignificant amendment to the budget 2022 and placed the carnival subsidy under the Tourism Department. Be that as it may, Carnival took place, but as it now appears, all was not well .

We received a request from the Carnival foundation for an urgent public meeting to discuss pending issues etc.

Choosing to request a public meeting in itself was interesting as the format of meetings with third parties is usually determined by the chair of parliament Read more

La Diputada Wescot Reitera Su Llamado Al Gobierno Por Ms Transparencia Y Dilogo.

Si bien el gobierno de St. Maarten llama a la unidad, es el mayor polarizador.
PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – La diputada nota con mucha preocupacin que ha pasado una semana ms y no hay noticias sobre el Ministro del TEATT y su regreso al cargo. El ministro desapareci de la vista del pblico sin ni siquiera un aviso al pblico en general. Y el Consejo de Ministros de Sint Maarten parece no tener ningn problema con la situacin. Sin embargo, hay tantos asuntos importantes pendientes en el Ministerio del TEATT.

Si bien la ausencia del Ministro, en mi opinin, es inaceptable que la comunidad y el parlamento se queden en la oscuridad, ms asombroso es el hecho de que este ministerio es responsable de los precios de los bienes y el precio del combustible y al gobierno aparentemente podra importarle Read more

Mp Wescot Reiterates Her Call To Government For More Transparency And Dialogue.

While the St. Maarten government calls for unity, it is the biggest polarizer.

The MP notes with much concern that another week has gone by and there is no news about the Minister of TEATT and his return to office.
The minister disappeared from the public view without so much as a notice to the general public. And the Council of Ministers of Sint Maarten seems to have no issue with the situation. Yet, there are so many important matters pending at the Ministry of TEATT.

While the Ministers absence is one thing and in my view unacceptable that the community and the parliament are left in the dark, more flabbergasting is the fact that this ministry is responsible for the prices of goods and the price of fuel and the government seemingly could care less that weeks have passed since the minister announced relief for the consumers due to the high gas prices.

MP Wescot recalled that before the minister went on an assumed leave, he announced the reduction of the cost of fuel for the consumer Read more
