KRALENDIJK — PDB has started a real crusade to get its own back in the controversy on deputy Burney el Hage staying on or not and several other matters, for example bringing the current political structure to the notice of the public.
After having sent letters to Government representative Wilbert Stolte, Henk Kamp and Wouter Bos (politicians investigating on behalf of the crown) are next.
In a letter to Kamp and Bos, Robby Beukenboom (floor-leader of Partido Demokrátiko Boneriano in the Island Council), wrote his party was appalled at the intention of the current administrative coalition to give the lieutenant governor a talking to because she plans an integrity inquiry into electricity supply on the island.
It appears that the energy rates will go up because they aren’t cost-effective. The distribution company WEB meanwhile has a debt running into millions and one seriously suspects the energy prices had gone up unnecessarily in the past due to an incorrect decision-process, according to the party. PDB wrote it bases this on persistent rumors that advice from dubious figures led to self-enrichment and promoting of own interests.
PDB emphasized it entirely supported the inquiry announced by the lieutenant governor and rejects any attempt from the current council to lay the position of the lieutenant governor on the table for that reason.
The party therefore urges that an integrity inquiry into WEB N.V. be included in the coalition agreement.
According to Beukenboom, his party and the Netherlands disagree on the political position of the island but parties must reach agreement on the fact that Bonaire is entitled to a stable and reliable government and that corrupt administrators and practices are to be dealt with.
