Government Failed?
      #1750647 - 10/30/17 07:04 PM (107.147.98.9)

Did I hear right that once again the Government has failed? This, post Irma, is not the time for petty squabbles. We need money from the Nederlandse and the petty squabbles will only harm that. WAKE UP!

Does this mean that Holland will have much needed control of St Maarten government

This means that the funds that will be made available for the redevelopment of the Island will be under full control.

Based on what I have learned about the form of government, the answer to this is "no", although the conditions it set for making the money available will be met. One of those conditions was for there to be accountability for and control over the money independent of the government. Look for the Dutch to tweak that requirement, depending on their view of the new government.
