Mp Grisha Heyliger-Marten (Upp) Congratulates Mfk And People Of Curaao Election Result Should Come As No Surprise

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten –On behalf of the United Peoples Party,I want to extend my heartfelt congratulations to the MFK party in Curaao and their leaderMP Gilmar PikPisas for the convincing election victory on March 19th. The people of Curaao have spokenloud and clear,and are the ultimate winners ofthis andany election.

From what I have observed and been told, I think it is safe to conclude that the elections were basically a contest between the proponents of the CRE, and those who believe it is unconstitutional and violates the autonomy of the island among other objections. 

The time it took for the Council of State to provide an advice on the proposed CRE/COHO, raises the question if this highest advisory body in the Kingdom acknowledged the objections brought forward by the islands and pointed these out to the Dutch Government.

The election results clearly show that the large majority of the people of Curacao are against the conditions as imposed by Holland in return for financial aid Read more
