Here’s the FULL story from the Daily Herald- now I KNOW why yesterday in the Parliament Media room— EXACTLY what Hilbert Haar and Alita Singhs INTERACTION was about- I might be blind, but you could ‘feel’ the vibe between the Daily Herald and the Today Paper. I said on Sunday and last night on the Edwin Gumbs program that Gibson HAD to resign- I’m glad he took my advice.
The Daily Herald covered it, now let’s see if The Today Paper covers it too 🙂
PHILIPSBURG–St. Maarten representative on the Committee for Financial Supervision CFT Richard Gibson Sr. has resigned from his post as of December 1. This leaves the country without a member on the committee that oversees its budget and finances.
The CFT confirmed Gibson Sr.’s resignation to The Daily Herald on Tuesday.
Prior to this, CFT Chairman Age Bakker had said during the committee’s quarterly visit to the country last week that Gibson and CFT had agreed to keep some “distance for now.” No information about the resignation was given during that visit.
Gibson’s resignation possibly was linked to his candidacy for the post of Finance Minister in what is said to be the Marcel Gumbs Cabinet. However, his candidacy is said to be in doubt now due to some legal complaints filed against him that have affected his security and integrity screenings.
Whether the incoming government will reappoint Gibson Sr. or opt for a new representative on CFT is not known.
