Aruba: Prime Minister Nelson Oduber Transfers Power to 2008 carnival Prince Hala Kita and Pancho Pa Nos Pasa
(It would seem that PM Oduber fits right in with Carnival 2008)
Today in Aruba, Prime Minister Nelson Oduber handed over the cerimonial keys of Aruba to the 2008 carnival Prince Hala Kita and Pancho Pa Nos Pasa. Many in Aruba probably wish this was not just a cerimonial function. One might ask the question, if anyone would notice a difference. Heck, these two might be a better choice to do a better job.
We are glad to see that Nelson Oduber is doing such important fuctions like this rather than helping solve the disappearance of Natalee Holloway that has impacted Aruba and its tourism.

ORANJESTAD – In the presence of the youth prince and –pancho, the children- and youth queens, representatives of the committee of Aruban Carnival Foundation, SAC, including chairman Tecla Kelly and committee member René Ridderstap, Prime minister Nelson Oduber traditionally handed over the key of Aruba to the 2008 carnival Prince Hala Kita and Pancho Pa Nos Pasa.
The Company gathered at the Government Office near the Parliament building at 10:00 on Sunday. Oduber emphasized in his speech that the carnival period is a time of pleasure and enjoyment. Carnival must be celebrated in harmony, with respect for each other, and without incidents. By handing over the symbolic key of Aruba, the premier transfers the power to Prince and Pancho for the next three weeks.
