1985 Aruban general election

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

General elections were held in Aruba on 22 November 1985 to elect the Island Council.[1][2] They were held shortly before Aruba was split from the Netherlands Antilles and obtained the status of a 'land' (country) within the Kingdom of the Netherlands.[3] The Island Council was converted into the first Estates of Aruba on 1 January 1986.

Although the People's Electoral Movement  won the most seats, the Aruban People's Party formed a coalition government with the Aruban Patriotic Party, Aruban Democratic Party and National Democratic Alliance, with Henny Eman becoming the first Prime Minister of Aruba.[2]
