I am not so sure that Boasman is PM. According to this story, parliament has passed a motion, but there is no indication yet that the Governor has signed off on the motion.

https://www.sxm-talks.com/st-maarten-news/parliament-wants-to-relieve-pm-marlin-of-his-duties/

The story also indicates that the Parliament is asking the Kingdom council to overturn the decree that dissolves parliament. So it is TBD if elections will be held.

Politically, it seems to me that if the Kingdom council overturns the decree, it would represent a lack of confidence in the Governor. Then it would appropriate for him to resign.

It looks like everything is still up in the air, depending on what the governor does. And Marlin is blathering on about how he never refused aid from the Dutch and making statements that Sint Maarten should not sell it's soul for so many pieces of silver. What a piece of work..

A couple of questions for the TTOL island government gurus:

1) What conditions are being made on the French side for help from Paris?

2) is there a French side equivalent Govt? A parliament?, etc?

3) i see the dutch want the marchaussee ( dutch military police/gendarmarie) involved, will that make them more like the French??

4) can the dutch/french police/courts pursue a suspect or investigate a crime on either side of the border? Can someone escape arrest/prosecution simply by hiding out on the other side of the island?
