WILLEMSTAD – Last night, the leaders of three political parties signed an agreement for the formation of a new government for Curaçao.
The political parties that have agreed to form a government together are the winner of the elections, PAR, with MAN and the new party of former Minister of Traffic, Transport and Spatial Planning Suzanne Camelia-Römer, the PIN.
