WILLEMSTAD - The new Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport (OWCS) has been announced. Steven Croes takes the oath on Monday with Governor Lucille George-Wout. Croes will take over the duties of the acting Minister of Education Eugene Rhuggenaath.
The Prime Minister has also been Minister of Education since Marilyn Alcalá-Wallé resigned. She resigned after a conflict of interest was filed against her.
Croes passed the screening well and will hold the position of Minister of Education until the elections in March 2021. Whether he will then participate in the elections is unknown.
Until recently, Steven Croes worked for financial services provider Citco, Rhuggenaath's former employer.
