POSTED: 11/28/11 8:03 AM

St. Maarten – President of Parliament drs Gracita Arrindell and six other MPs will head to Panama this week for executive and permanent committee meetings of the Latin American Parliament (Parlatino). Parlatino, which was created on December 7, 1964, is a regional, permanent and unicameral organization, comprising the National Latin American Parliaments elected democratically upon popular vote. Parlatino was created to promote human rights, and economic and social development; to maintain and foster relations with other geographic parliaments, as well as international organizations; and to defend against imperialism and colonialism.
Arrindell will be attending the executive board meetings of Parlatino as one of the Vice Presidents of the Junta Directiva, the main directorate of organizational activities. National Alliance faction leader William Marlin and United People’s (UP) Party MP Sylvia Meyers-Olivacce will attend a meeting of the Committee on Education, Culture, Science, Technology and Communication, while United People’s (UP) Party MP Johan Leonard and National Alliance MP George Pantophlet will attend a meeting of the Committee Citizen Safety, Combat and Prevention of Drug Trafficking, Terrorism and Organized Crime. Leonard is also scheduled to attend a meeting of the Committee Human Rights, Justice and Prison Policies. Dr. Ruth Douglass and Leroy De Weever will attend the meeting of the Health Committee.
St. Maarten supports the core principles that Parlatino represents such as defence of democracy, non-intervention, self-determination of nations, legal equality of States, the rejection to threat and to the use of force against the political independence and territorial integrity of any State, the peaceful, fair and negotiated solution of international conflicts
The Parlatino meetings are being held from November 29 to December 2 when the 27th General Assembly meeting is held.
