POSTED: 09/15/11 12:24 PM

GREAT BAY, St. Maarten – Only four members of parliament recorded a near perfect attendance record at Central Committee meetings during country St. Maarten’s first parliamentary year. Parliament President Gracita Arrindell, and her fellow United People’s party MPs Jules James, Ruth Douglas and Johan Leonard all just missed one out of 34 meetings – an attendance record of 97 percent. Hyacinth Richardson (National Alliance) holds the worst record; he attended only 9 Central Committee meetings. The second worst record is for his fellow NA-member Louie Laveist who showed up at 12 meetings.
The parliament’s first annual report also reveals how often parliamentarians did not show up for a meeting without giving notice. Hyacinth Richardson is the uncontested champion in this field. He missed 25 meetings without giving notice. Close on his heels is Louie Laveist who did not bother to give notice 22 times. Only Gracita Arrindell and Ruth Douglas have an unblemished record as far as this is concerned.
This is the attendance record in the 34 Central Committee meetings that were held during the first parliamentary year.
