May 12, 2021 WILLEMSTAD - In a letter to the President of Parliament Charetti America-Francisca, the parliamentary faction of MFK has asked to meet to discuss 'adjustments to the measures of the Emergency Act imposed on the population. The party urgently wants a public meeting on this topic.
After not being able to go to the beach for more than a month, 'plachi di dia' (license plate of the day) and the curfew in connection with the measures against corona, the rules were relaxed last week. “The residents had to give up a lot and immediately obeyed the rules. The population should no longer have to sacrifice so much,” said the MPs in their letter.
The health sector and local economy depend on a responsible way of opening the economy after the lockdown. According to the party, this can only be done by means of rules and measures. The economy of Curacao has suffered from the strict measures of recent times. "We don't yet know the full effect of Covid on the economy."
Especially at the airport and port of Curacao strict, but effective rules must be enforced. “Only through sacrifices and measures can we achieve our goal,” the MPs stated.
