The Island Councils are the bodies of elected people's representatives of each of the public bodies of Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba - and previously of each of the island territories of the Netherlands Antilles. The Island Council supervises the island's Executive Council, which is composed of a lieutenant governor and several members. The Island Council may be compared to the municipal council. Like the municipal council, the Island Council is elected directly for a period of four years. The most recent elections to the island councils were held on Wednesday, 20 March 2019.
Bonaire - elections were held to elect the nine members of the Island council and the island's nine Electoral College members for the 2019 Senate elections. With three parties – the Bonaire Democratic Party, Bonaire Patriotic Union and Movement of Bonaire People – each holding three seats on the Island Council going into the elections, the Movement of Bonaire People won four seats and became as the largest party.
Saba - Voters elected the five members of the Island Council, and, for the first time, the five members of the Electoral College for the Dutch Senate. The result was a victory for the ruling Windward Islands People's Movement (WIPM), which won all five seats in the Island Council and four of the five seats in the Senate Electoral College.
Sint Eustatius - Voters in St. Eustatius were able to cast their vote for Electoral College representatives for the first time. The DP Statia party, the only party that participated in the electoral college election received all valid votes.
