ST. EUSTATIUS–The Progressive Labour Party (PLP) faction in the Island Council left St. Eustatius on Friday, June 4, for a series of meetings, training and networking in the Netherlands.
The PLP delegation consists of Island Council members Clyde van Putten and Reuben Merkman and deputy registrar Jami Eshan.
PLP faction leader Rechelline Leerdam had to cancel her travel arrangements due to work-related matters beyond her control.
Island Council member for the Democratic Party (DP) Adelka Spanner was also unable to travel to the Netherlands. Independent councilman Koos Sneek travelled to the Netherlands ahead of the PLP group.
Several meetings are scheduled with Members of the Dutch Parliament and various political parties.
“The PLP is positively looking forward to building and maintaining relationships with the various political parties in The Hague,” Leerdam stated.
