Mayor Resigns as a Result of Senator Affair

Mayor Ricardo Offermanns (Liberal) has resigned as mayor of Meerssen. Earlier he had withdrawn his candidacy for the mayoralty of Roermond. One of several accusations against the Municipal Councilor Jos van Rey (Liberals) of Roermond was that he had leaked to Offermanns and possibly to others, secret information about the sate of the Roermond candidacy. This led to the resignation of Van Rey as senator and municipal councillor. Offermanns has furthermore resigned as Chairman of the Liberal Party in the province of Limburg.
