Governement Curacao loses majority

WILLEMSTAD – The government of Curaçao no longer has the support of a majority in Parliament.
 
Only seven weeks into their term, the government headed by Prime Minister Koeiman is in crisis.
 
Two members of political party Pueblo Soberano (PS), Melvin Cijntje and Sherwin Leonora, today said they no longer support the government of Koeiman.
 
They did this in a letter to the Governor. In this letter they state that several parties have reached an agreement to form a majority. 
 
 An accompanying document called “agreement for a different government 2017-2020” was signed by the fractions of MFK (four seats), “Korsou di Nos Tur” (KdNT) (three seats), PS (two) and “Movementu Progresivo” (one), plus independent (former PAR) Parliamentarian Eduard Braam, for a minimal majority of 11 in the 21-seat Parliament.
