WILLEMSTAD.- In a statement, the MAN Party Board gave its support to its parliamentary member Giselle McWilliam and the Parliamentary Delegation of Curaçao in IPKO. President Yves Schoop and Secretary Roland Ignacio, supports Mc William who, together with her parliamentary colleagues, are participating in a meeting of the IPKO Interparliamentary Conference in St. Maarten.

As is well known, the delegation of Curaçao explained that they do not agree with the proposition for a Dispute Arrangement that the Secretary of Kingdom Relations, Raymond Knops delivered. Mc William also said that the entire kingdom has to help with the problems that have arisen since the day the refugees from Venezuela arrived in Aruba, Sint Maarten and Curaçao. According to Mc William, the Netherlands cannot be left out, saying that it is the responsibility of each country.

The MAN party holds “the firm position” that the Delegation of Curaçao assumed, together with the Delegation of Aruba and Sint Maarten, related to the content of the Kingdom Dispute Arrangement. “The time has come for these three partners of the Kingdom to demand recognition in the position of equality that exists against the Netherlands for the moment in which they must make Kingdom decisions related to matters that are of interest to the respective peoples of Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten. The MAN party also supports the position of our Parliamentary Delegation regarding the shared responsibility of the Kingdom in relation to the situation of the Refugees of Venezuela. It cannot be that the Kingdom leaves Aruba and Curaçao to stagnate with this problem, while The Netherlands does give support to countries such as Colombia and Peru to meet the same situation that is replicated in our country: The Southern Coasts of Curaçao and Aruba, at the same time, are South Borders of the Dutch Kingdom, says the statement.

MAN Party wishes Giselle and the entire Parliamentary Delegation of Curaçao: “a lot of strength of conviction, determination and perseverance, to be able to achieve the maximum for Curaçao in the deliberation of the issues that are currently under discussion”.
