There is a constitutional crisis ongoing on the island of Curacao where according to the current Government there is a sort of (silent) coup d'etat being orchestrated by a majority of the members of Parliament. This after a sudden shift from 2 members of parliament to the former minority making them the new majority. Because of this sudden shift the government used Article 53 of the Curacao "Staatsregeling" (Comparable to the U.S. Constitution) which is there as a tool in case of political unrest to send Government and Parliament home while calling early elections. The new majority decided to push forward and is trying to setup a new government whilst elections are less than a month away. The Dutch governor on the island was consulted in this by both sides but according to the Curacao Prime Minister the Governor's solution supersedes his authority according to local laws.
