MADAME ESTATE - The 2nd and last Political Discussion that will be hosted on Laser 101, will be aired live on Monday, August 25th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. The leaders of the political parties that have representation in the present parliament have been invited to attend.
In first instance, Frans Richardson from the United St.Maarten Party, Sarah Wescot-Williams from the Democratic Party, and William Marlin from the National Alliance have all three confirmed their attendance by email to management of Philipsburg Broadcasting. Theo Heyliger of the United People's Party sent an email indicating that he could not confirm his attendance due to his agenda. Eventually William Marlin informed Philipsburg Broadcasting officials that there was a double booking as he has to attend an interview on a TV program on the same day and time, thus making it impossible for him to attend.
The National Alliance will therefore be sending Silveria Jacobs, and the United People's Party will be sending Frankie Meyers to represent the leader of the UP.
As the two candidates that will be attending this formal discussion are veteran members of their respective parties, the vision and sentiments of their leaders, and their party should be well represented.
The topics will be of a general nature, however integrity, will be the main driver.
The program will be retransmitted on radio stations on St.Martin, St.Barths and Saba. It will also be streamed on the world wide web (www.laser101.fm ).
The host of this program will once more be Glen Carty (Contributed by Laser 101 Glen Carty)
