NA-leader William Marlin: “What we see is the imploding of the United People’s party”

St. Maarten – “I think that what we see is the imploding of the United People’s party,” National Alliance leader William Marlin told reporters yesterday morning after hand delivering the original letter signed by four MPs who withdrew their support from the current government to the office of Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams at the Government Administration Building.

With an obvious reference to MP Romain Laville, Marlin said, “One member talked from the beginning National Alliance on the floor of the parliament, but then he voted with the UP. How long can one continue to speak one way and vote the other way?”

Marlin said that the people gave his party a mandate to be in government at the September 17 2010 elections. “The political reality is that we were left out at the formation. I can live with that, because those are the rules of the game.”

Asked about the new team of ministers, Marlin said that he did not want to get ahead of himself. “The governor is aware of the political development. How long it will take depends on the screening process. If it takes a week, or two weeks, we will be ready.”

Marlin wanted to hand deliver a letter to the Prime Minister, but he had to leave it at the Government Administration Building’s reception in the end. The letter in question is signed by MPs Laville, Illidge, Roy Marlin and De Weever and states that they have withdrawn their support from the current government.

A second letter went to governor Holiday, informing him that the National Alliance has formed a new majority in parliament with the three independent MPs Illidge, Richardson and Laville and the 2-man DP-faction.
