Electoral reform measures could go to parliament next week

St. Maarten News – Parliament President Sarah Wescot-Williams expects to receive the draft legislation to adjust the political system this week or next week Monday the latest. If the draft arrives on time, parliament has a slot open to handle it next week, the last week of meetings before the summer recess.

The government’s proposal intends to take the angle out of ship jumping, by taking away the right from ship jumping parliamentarians to form a majority with the opposition. Only the fractions of the parties that have been elected to parliament will be able to form such a majority. This would make it impossible for MPs to leave their faction and bring down a government.
