I'm confused now. It that vote a good or bad thing?

This is going to be a long wait, but the reward at the end will be worth it.

Vote on all three motions that passed were good in my opinion - but, what is unknown (at least to me) is what will happen next. Will Marlin Govt/Council of Ministers dissolve Parliament and call for elections? That is not good for anyone - again my opinion.

Yes, I agree that the vote of no confidence was appropriate, in my opinion. The story seemed to think that Marlin would call elections, which would be a very bad thing, in my opinion. I worry that there will be civil unrest.

Yes and delay reconstruction ....not good and I had thought Sarah was lobbying for No elections until the island becomes stable .

That's what she wants, but apparently Marlin can dissolve the Parliament, which means that they have to hold elections. Which will DEFINITELY delay reconstruction and probably receipt of the money from Holland.

In the past when elections were held, the amount of lumber, plywood and expense was enormous. This would be a huge waste in light of what is really needed for the island.

Doesn't the article specifically say that resolutions were passed to adopt both of the requirements set by the Dutch government? If so, then it looks like the receipt of the money may not be delayed, and also that there will be some degree of independent control over how it gets spent.

The resolutions were passed, yes. But the point is that if Marlin calls elections, technically he stays in power until the elections are held. And according to the Dutch, they say that he still has not UNEQUIVOCALLY agreed to the Dutch terms.
