Democracy still does not predominate between the countries

WILLEMSTAD - In the Interparliamentary Kingdom Consultation (IPKO) that took place on Wednesday, expert in constitutional law Rutsel Martha stated that there is indeed a democratic deficit within the countries. Martha believes that financial supervision is not in line with what the law says. He refers to several articles from the Charter for the Kingdom of the Netherlands.  


The agenda of the meeting included the item 'democratic deficit'. In addition to Dutch MPs, members of Parliament from Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten were also present. Martha was the first spokesperson for the morning and gave a speech about the constitutional characteristics of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, in which he emphasized that he assumed equal participating countries.  


Pragmatism, equality, equality, legal order, power relations and interpretation were the key words in the expert's speech. He contrasted these concepts with several Statute articles and concluded that democratic action is not always taken. “There is voluntary, mutual cooperation between countries on the one hand, and on the other hand it is the Kingdom government that ascribes certain powers,” says Martha.  


The Kingdom consultations started on Tuesday and will last until Friday. The results of the consultation form a list of agreements, which is then adopted and signed. At the conclusion of the consultation, the agreements will be shared with the community through a press conference.
