PM suspends COM press briefings for 2 weeks

Prime Minister William Marlin


PHILIPSBURG – As of this week, Prime Minister (PM) William Marlin via the Department of Communication (DCOMM) has suspended the live weekly Council of Ministers (COM) press briefings for the period of November 23-30.

The cancellation is for DCOMM to facilitate the move of the existing television production equipment to the new Government Administration building on Pond Island. The timing of the move to the new Government Building will also facilitate the Charlotte Brookson Academy School, which will occupy the old Government Building at Clem Labega Square as of November 30.

DCOMM made it known to the media and the general public that the Council of Ministers will be available for comments or to answer any questions as is customary. All Ministers will continue with their regular activities, and this will be communicated to the public via the media.

DCOMM regrets any inconvenience this may cause. Visit the official Government website, Facebook page SXMGOV and the YouTube channel for information from the Government of St. Maarten.
