Usp Questions The Security Of The Hospital Contractual Agreement Signed With Inso

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – The board of the United St. Maarten Party (USP) on Sunday said it is astounded by governmentslackadaisicalapproach towards what is happening at the hospital project, and questioned the status and security of the contract signed for the hospital project with INSO, now FINSO. The many financial setbacks reported at the project should beraising alarms within government, President of the USP Cecil Nicholas said.

Usp Questions The Blind Execution Of Legislation That Legislates The Legislator

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – President of the The United St. Maarten Party (USP) board Cecil Nicholas said his board was baffled by Thursdays public meeting of Parliament which dealt with the suspension of MP Claudius Buncamper, dubbing the meeting amusing. 

Todays meeting which should have been opened and closed without fan fear because the law is clear, was turned into a circus with legislators basically elucidating on the interpretation of the law. Are the legislators not supposed to present proposed amendments to the law? Nicholas said.

What should have been addressed today is how the declaration of Independence by MPs circumvents proportional representation based on the party list, since the execution of the letter of the Attorney General now nullifies the notion that MPs own the seat based on the oath they take.

What is the spirit of the law with regards to application of proportional representation in accordance with the party list? Does the oath circumvent the party platform and manifesto as it relates to the vision for the country that is sold to the people during election campaigns? If the seat belongs to individual candidates, then why does the law now reflect back to the party as opposed to the affected MP now appointing his own substitute as an independent member of parliament? Nicholas continued. 

He added that while parliament without question accepted the nullification of the US party and its list with a declaration of independence, the highest legislative body in the country is now awaiting another instruction, this time from the electoral councilof who will be the representative member of the same USP in Parliament. Which they have to accept without question, outside of having new elections, Nicholas said. 

So the same laws that cast the party aside, also acknowledgesthe primary position of the party as the foundation of the basis of the seats in Parliament. The United St Read more

Usp Questions The Benefits Of Strategic Alliance With Schiphol

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – With the season and the projected increase in passenger arrivals to St. Maarten, the board of the United St. MaartenParty is concerned with the lack of measures in placeto manage passenger experience and questions the much-talked-aboutbenefits of the strategic Alliance with SchipholAirport.

Afterall, the CEO of PJIA Brian Mingo makes it a habit to highlight Schiphols level of expertise and experience as far surpassing our local capacity. So one would have expected that a strategic plan would be in place to address future growth and current passenger experience, instead of the reestablishment of a vision already brought to reality by our local experts for 40 million dollars less, President of the USP board Cecil Nicholas said.

Nicholas lamented the long lines outside of the terminal now being experienced by visitors to the country, some 4 years after hurricane Irma. Additionally, he questioned what exactly has been accomplished at PJIA since the government, Schiphol and Ballast Nedam shared a toast in August this year Read more

Usp Not Surprised By Mp Arrindell, Deficit In Electoral Structure Persists

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – The board of the United St. Maarten (US) party on Saturday said the announcement by MPAkeemArrindellthat he was breaking from the US was a plan months in the making by the MP, and once again highlights the deficits in the countrys electoral structure.

The party board said it is unfortunate that MPs do not have the same conviction to the truth as they have in their attempt to present a sympathetic picture to the public. The board said it is not at all surprised by the announcement since MP Arrindellthreatened the board via letter in March 2021.

Organized Confusion The At The PeopleS Expense

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – In the midst of thehigh level of confusion around theplay on words liketrajectory,theconstant repositioning ofthis governing coalitionwith regards to COHO, the petition to the United Nationsand continued liquidity support, one thing remainsglaringly constant: Theeverydayplightandhopelessness felt by the average citizens of this country.

The obvious lack of strategic planning with regards to the petition to the U.N. and the seemingly unprepared demeanor for responses of State Secretary Knops, hit this coalition like a deer caught in the headlights of an eighteen wheeler container truck.We have yet to see any formal or formidable response or strategy moving forward, other than the Prime Minister refusing to sign on to the country package until liquidity support is reinstated. 

The debris of the collision is a direct reflection of the emotional state of the country Read more

Who Will Rescue The People From The Pm

Dear editor

The Council of State has reviewed the COHO consensus law which was propped up by the honorable Prime Minister SilveriaJacobs and has found it wanting.  The Councils findings will lead many in the governing coalition to begin their high-stepping, back-patting, and congratulatory nods for their perceived personal / political victory.

However, the real question is how does their personal / political victory translate into tangible relief for the citizens of this country during this COVID-19 pandemic. The realties being faced by a multitude of families on this island who are struggling to put food on the table and meet their monthly financial obligations will not be reflected in the fake victorious verbiage and sound bites that will resonate in the media in coming days.

While the political rhetoric that is to follow may boost the egos of the weak, excuse me, meek, the average citizen is overwhelmed with fears of what the next few months will bring with regards to their abilities to continue to meet there financial obligations for basic survival on a monthly basis .

Knowing that they have the ability to put food on the table, pay for the roof over their heads, job stability, earning a livable wage to maintain their livelihood, the ability to see a doctor and not have to pay out of pocket, and confidently sending their children to school knowing that there in a safe learning environment, is paramount on the minds of the people right now.

While the Council of State report may give credence to the petition to the U.N Read more
