ORANJESTAD- On the island of St. Eustatius a political debate will take place on Saturday, March 11 between three political leaders on the island. Rechelline Leerdam (PLP), Sjahairah Fleming (CDA-Statia) and Raquel Spanner-Carty of the Democratic Party will be facing off at 7 PM at the Event Plaza.
There is an admission fee of five dollars to be present at the venue. An ad appearing on the various media warns that only ‘mature audience’ is welcome.
The debate promises to be interesting, with voters -especially undecided ones- being able to get a first hand feel of the difference between the three political parties contesting the election this year. Especially with the full democratic powers to be restored to the Island Council it is of course of importance who will be representing the people of St. Eustatius.
