The Party Workers' Liberation Front 30th of May (Papiamento: Partido Frente Obrero Liberashon 30 Di Mei, Frente Obrero, abbreviated FOL) is a populist political party in Curaçao founded in 1969. The party participated in the general elections for the Curaçao-constituency in the Estates of the Netherlands Antilles and the Curaçao Island council until the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles in 2010.After losing its seat in the Estates of Curaçao following the Curaçao general election, 2012, the party is not represented anymore in the Curaçao legislature.[2]

Netherlands Antilles

The party was founded in 1969 and named after the riots/uprising of 30 May. When Wilson Godett and Stanley Brown were elected in the Estates of the Netherlands Antilles, they were still in jail for their connections with the riots; but their upcoming membership in the Estates set them free.[1] During the 2002 and 2006 elections respectively, the party won 5 and 2 of the 14 Curaçao-seats in the 22 seat Estates of the Netherlands Antilles,[3][4] but during the 2010 election the party failed to obtain any seats.[5]

In 2003, the party obtained eight seats and became the largest party in the 21-seat island council (with 34% of the vote),[6] dropping to 2 seats in 2007.[7] The party delivered two prime-ministers of the Netherlands Antilles: Ben Komproe and Mirna Louisa-Godett. The latter was only appointed as Governor Frits Goedgedrag refused to inaugurate her brother (and son of Wilson Godett) Anthony Godett. The single seat[8] the party obtained in the Island council election of 2010 (held by Anthony Godett) automatically became a seat in the Estates of Curaçao upon the Dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles in 2010.
