politics and government of
the Netherlands Antilles

The Netherlands Antilles was an autonomous entity within the Kingdom of the Netherlands and consisted of the following five islands: Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, Sint Eustatius and the Dutch part of Saint Martin (Sint Maarten).

The Charter of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (Dutch: Statuut) defined the association between the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba. The overseas territories were autonomous, although there were a limited number of affairs which were handled by the Kingdom as a whole. These "Kingdom affairs" included foreign relations.

The government of the Netherlands Antilles was dissolved on 10 October 2010.[1]
