BC sends 46 laws to the Island Council

The BC has sent a list with 46 organic laws to the Island Council. These are laws that are outlined according to the State Settlement of the Land Curacao.

The BC asks the Island Council in a letter to approve these 46 laws by means of an island-decision.

It was agreed in the Start Round Table Conference (Start-RTC) of November 2005 that in order to verify whether the organic national ordinances comply with the mutual criterion settled by the entities for their legislation, the future countries would present these to the Round Table Conference (RTC) for verification through the Preparatory-committee Round Table conference (VRTC).

The 46 organic laws, together with the state settlement of Land Curacao, form the groundwork of the future autonomous Curacao. Because these national ordinances work out and make concrete the establishment of Curacao’s future state association as laid down in the state settlement, these organic national ordinances, together with the state settlement form the so-called constitutional right of Land Curacao.

The BC indicates in the letter to the Island Council that a picture of the establishments of Land Curacao as mentioned in the state settlement can only be obtained if the organic settlements, in which the establishments are elaborated, can be looked at.
The list of organic laws that were submitted to the Island Council, are about among others the electoral law, the establishment of ministries, the compensation scheme for parliament-members, the institution of the ombudsman, the Social Economic Council, free of charge legal assistance, general pension insurance, kindergarten and elementary- and secondary education, national taxation, the right on medical assistance of underprivileged, television national ordinance, governments accounts law, and domain territories.
