Curacao parties finally sign coalition agreement
Published on December 14, 2012 Email To Friend    Print Version

Coalition partners signed an agreement on Wednesday finally giving Curacao a new government

WILLEMSTAD, Curacao -- Some eight weeks after Curacao voters went to the polls in October, party leaders Helmin Wiels (PS), Alex Rosaria (PAIS), Humphrey Davelaar (PNP) and independent member of parliament Glenn Sulvaran signed a coalition agreement on Wednesday.

The signing was accompanied by singing, dancing and white doves representing peace for the future of the island.

The political leaders and the official responsible for overseeing the formation of the new government, Glenn Camelia, were all present during the signing of the agreement, which was entirely in a Curacao style ceremony. After a song and dance performed by a gospel group, it was time to sing the national anthem.

Former prime minister of the Netherlands Antilles Maria Liberia then gave a speech in which she thanked Camelia and the political leaders for their efforts. She also spoke of the importance of a strong and reliable government. As an example, she took the former president of the United States John F. Kennedy, who she sees as a man of the people. Liberia has been closely involved in forming the coalition.

The signing of the agreement was marked by reconciliation and this was symbolically represented by the release of white doves after the leaders had signed the documents.

“We will win back public confidence,” promised PAIS leader Rosaria during his speech after the signing.

Wiels, winner of the elections in October, went even further: “We will not fail! With the help of Jehovah, this government will not fail!”

Nice Forum, my brothers and sisters, I am not against no one doing their THING, but we have to understand what really is going on, and i Believe brother Wiels had to tell the TRUTH about the signing of the Documents, I have learned many thing of Brother Wiels that he HIM self mentioned the BILDENBERG group and the OIL and GAS issues, Thats why they went to the United Nations and other Groups to ask for help against the Bildenberg group and some local people who were working with these GROUP, So know WIELS got help from the UNITED nations which is basically a higher LEVEL of the PYRAMID which are the ILLUMINATI, the iluminated ones, OR better ILUMI-CORP, and they are know OWNER of CURACAO, And thats whats going on.

The New WORLD ORDER is with CURACAO 12/12/12

Have a blessed day. Ronald Wederfoort
