PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - A tsunami rocked our hide- out when we learned of the results of the long awaited screening results. For many, the results did not come as a surprise as we went down that road some years ago when it comes to the leader of UPP. That he was closely related to Mr. Schotte should not come as a surprise nor should the Romain Laville saga. The Prosecutor throws a Monkey Wrench in the white and green coalition by issuing a damning report arising from the screening of to be Ministers.
As a consequence of this report, the two political parties had to go back to the drawing board and try to form a government now with the US Party, and the DP Party. The prosecutors report indicated that Theodore Heyliger and Franklyn Meyers failed to pass the screening process.The report mentioned that MP Heyliger is under investigation and unpaid taxes by Franklyn Meyers wife.
Considering all the above The Mongoose must take note of the fact that if the interest of the people comes first with the UP party, then the big question is: why hold those that voted for the UP party hostage to the fact that those mentioned cannot pass the screen instead of presenting new candidates to represent the UPP. After - all their votes jointly got the 5 seats in parliament.
But it seems if not Frankie and or Theo, no one else.
