The Electoral Council of Sint Maarten
The Electoral Council is an essential part of the country's electoral procedure. The Electoral Council, which was established in January 2014, is charged with enforcing the National Ordinance on Registration and Finances of Political Parties. The Electoral Council functions independently from government and is comparable to the other High Councils of State like the Council of Advice and the General Audit Chamber.
The Electoral Council was established to promote a transparent and democratic structure of political parties and to ensure integrity of the political parties, prevention of conflict of interests and the balance of the political process. Its objective is also to promote good governance and a proper financial administration by both political parties and the candidates as stipulated in the National Ordinance on Registration and Finances of Political Parties.
