Early board elections DOE cancelled
The party for Democracy and Unity (DOE) recently issued a statement, indicating that will not hold early board elections. It was decided at Saturday’s congress that the current board will be maintained. “Leaders who stick to the actual DOE ideology must be given the opportunity to keep doing their job. This is the reason why the current board will be given the opportunity to remain in office until the end of May 2018,” said the party in its statement. The party explained that such a decision could not be made overnight because the successors must be prepared to take on the responsibilities. An evaluation will take place which will be based on several comments.
Ricky Stutgard, chief board member, responded to the decision by pointing out that the main board must figure out what it wants to do within the party. “They must try to sound convincing because the people no longer believe them. I do not feel like wasting time on jokers who have forgotten their own objectives and promises. Things such as honesty, integrity and transparency are currently missing within DOE. But that’s what happens when the chairman of the party stands on a truck with President Desi Bouterse and claims that he supports the collaboration with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and that he also agrees with the electricity price hikes and the scrapping of state subsidies,” said Stutgard. He made it clear that DOE is a party for the family and that it is unacceptable for the party to help make the people poorer. “I would not come as a surprise to me when they try to change the party’s bylaws within the next two years so that the current management team can find a way to remain in office,” said Stutgard.
