Gracita says meeting with integrity group informative

PHILIPSBURG--The integrity pilot group installed by Governor Eugene Holiday recently held an "informative and enlightening" meeting with President of Parliament Gracita Arrindell.

Attending the meeting were Chairman of the group M. Oosting and members Professor J. Saleh, and M. Alexander and members of his Secretariat S. Ricardo and P. Benschop.

Oosting reiterated the content of the Royal Decree signed by King Willem-Alexander and pointed out that the House of Parliament as a High Council of State is excluded from the research that is being carried out, however, it doesn't mean that there can't be discussions related to integrity.

The integrity pilot group aims to have their research completed within six months.

Arrindell said she looks forward to the outcome of the research which will help to solidify the way forward in dealing with integrity issues in St. Maarten and in building the country's institutions of governance. "The process will require the input of all those involved as well as of the general public. A change in mind set is necessary for integrity to become a way of life," she said.
