PHILIPSBURG–“We are committed and still seriously busy with finalizing the formation process,” said United St. Maarten Party (US Party) Member of Parliament Frans Richardson on Tuesday.
His statement was made to dispel what he referred to as “desperate rumour mongering” about the possible crumbling of the red, white and blue coalition on social media.
“The public can rest assured that all is well and we are committed to the three-party coalition we have signed on to,” he added.
The US Party has “no intention whatsoever to talk/negotiate with any other party and has not done so,” Richardson said.
The focus is on finalizing the coalition’s governing programme and vetting the two minister candidates submitted by his party.
