Frans: USP is on a  steady path of growth

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - Leader of the United St. Maarten (US) party MP Frans Richardson on Tuesday said he is “extremely proud” of the overall effort of his candidates and party during the 2016 Parliamentary elections and looks forward to continue working for the people of St. Maarten. “Now with 3 seats, we are on a steady path of growth and we are very proud of this,” he said. Richardson noted that the US was the only returning party that increased in votes (more than 1,100) compared to the 2014 Parliamentary elections, something he attributed to a proven record of accomplishments for the people and the party’s steadfast people-first approach. “We went into this election championing a very clear approach; show the people how you intend to improve their quality of life. We accomplished this with clear positions on key issues in our manifesto, a consistent marketing campaign but online and off... Read more

SMCP Thanks Voters and Requests a Recount

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten – The St. Maarten Christian Party (SMCP) wishes to thank the general public and particularly our 856 voters for your support and confidence in us during the 2016 Parliamentary Elections. As a new party, we believe that we conducted a clean and transparent campaign that was focused on educating the electorate, demonstrating a zero tolerance towards vote buying and challenging our Parliamentarians to offer good representation to the People. Preliminary results from the Main Voting Bureau indicate that we were 116 votes short of gaining a seat in Parliament. We have since exercised our right to request a recount at some key polling stations. However, as we await the final results, congratulations are in order for the National Alliance, United Peoples Party, United St. Maarten Party and the Democratic Party. To all of the other parties who did not win a seat, we did not get the crown... Read more
