Due to the short notice, I am unable to attend the oath-taking ceremony of the interim government today.
I do however want to wish the persons appointed to lead the government of St. Maarten for at least the coming 3 months or so much wisdom, strength and success in their undertakings. At the end of the day and notwithstanding the political circumstances, they will have to manage the affairs of the people, ALL of the people of this country. I therefore wish them much fortitude and in my position count on their openness and fairness towards all.
God bless St. Maarten. 🙏🏼🇸🇽
