Partido MAN is a political party in Curaçao founded in 1971,[1] which has two of the 21 seats of the Estates of Curaçao after the Curaçao general election of 2012.[2] In the elections preceding the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles the party gained two seats as well and joined the coalition government.[3] The party is a member of the Socialist International.[4]

Name[edit]

MAN originally stood for Movementu Antia Nobo (English: New Antilles Movement), but a party congress in 2005 decided to drop that meaning and let MAN be the name of the party in itself.

Netherlands Antilles[edit]

The minister-president of the Netherlands Antilles Don Martina from 1979 until 1984 and from 1986 to 1988 was MAN-related.[1] At the legislative elections in the Netherlands Antilles, 18 January 2002, the party won 5.2% of the popular vote and no seats,[5] at the Netherlands Antilles general election of 2006, the party returned in the Estates of the Netherlands Antilles with 3 out of 14 seats of the Curaçao constituency in the 22 seat parliament.[6] In the last Netherlands Antilles general election in 2010, the party participated together with NPA and FK obtaining 5 seats.[7]

In the island council (Netherlands Antilles) of 2003 and 2007, the party obtained 2 and 5 seats respectively.[8][9] The two seats the party obtained in the 2010 island council elections continued as the Estates of Curaçao on 10 October 2010.
