Exciting times. Curaçao parliamentary elections will be held on Friday, October 19 2012.
230 candidates from 8 different political parties are vying for 21 seats in parliament.
Each party has a color, each party has a flag — and our entire island currently looks and feels like one giant (and slightly confused) Gay Pride parade…
I’ll be dressing wisely in the following days!
Democrat/Laboral – Red
Frente Obrero (FOL) – Orange
MAN – Blue
Movementu Futuro Korsou (MFK) – White
Partido Alternativa Real (PAR) – Yellow
Partido pa Adelanto i Inovashon Soshal (PAIS) – Light Blue
Partido Nashonal di Pueblo (PNP) – Green
Pueblo Soberano (PS) – Cream
