Gracita Arrindell (PPA) fails to submit donation-registration

GREAT BAY – Seven of the fourteen candidates on the list of the People’s Progressive Alliance (PPA) that took part in the September 26 elections have failed to submit a registration of their donations to the electoral council. Among them is party leader Gracita Arrindell. All candidates that were elected to parliament submitted an overview of their donations.

The PPA-members who failed to register their donations are, apart from the party leader, Franchesca Arrindell, Cleopatra Dayday-Halley, Armando Gumbs, Bibiano Frensel Rimon, Patrick Williams and Johan Zwart.

Jelen Coulanges, a candidate for Frans Richardson’s United St. Maarten party also failed to submit an overview of her donations.

The Electoral Council says in a press release that four other candidates have submitted their registration online but that they still have to come in and sign. It is not possible to make any adjustments to these online statements, the council said.

The candidates who did not submit their donation-registration can expect a letter from the Electoral Council with the request to submit their information without further delay. “Failure to do so will result in additional measures,” the council stated.
