MP Richardson demands execution of April-motionPOSTED: 08/29/13 12:36 PM
St. Maarten – On April 13, the parliament passed a motion from Independent MP Frans Richardson that asked the government within 60 days for an “updated schedule” about the completion of the new government administration building on Pond Island and the moment civil servants would start occupying the building. The 60-day period expired on June 12. The motion furthermore asked that the government begin within 6 months with the construction of Block D and the parking garage on Pond Island.
“Four months have passed and parliament has not heard from you on either item,” Richardson writes in a letter to Prime Minister Wescot-Williams that he submitted on Tuesday.
The MP adds that it is “of the utmost importance that you (the Prime Minister – ed.) comply with our request” and he “summons” the PM to do so.
