Striving for Separation
In the beginning of the thirties of the past century, Aruba officially announced to the Government of the Dutch Kingdom its wish to separate from Curaçao. Jan Hendrik (Henny) Eman and Shon A Eman were the advocates of 'Separación' (separation).

The struggle for 'Status Aparte'.
In the course of the seventies, a movement came about that aimed to dissolve Aruba from the administrative unit of the Netherlands Antilles. After a couple of turbulent weeks in August 1977, the call for independence was recognized by the Dutch government, which resulted in obtaining the so-called 'Status Aparte': in 1986, Aruba became an independent country within the Dutch Kingdom

Tourism.
In 1959, the first major resort on Palm Beach was constructed. Next to the Aruba Caribbean Hotel, other so-called High-rise hotels were built. Several smaller hotels were built as well, like those on Eagle Beach. Tourism has grown to become the major employer on the island, next to the refinery.

The country Aruba.
In 1986, Aruba became, next to the Netherlands and the Netherlands Antilles, a country within the Dutch Kingdom. Like Curaçao, it has a Governor. It has its own parliament and government. The first Prime Minister was Henny Eman (AVP) in 1986. He was succeeded by Nelson Oduber (MEP), Prime Minister from 1989 till 1994. The second cabinet Eman was in power from 1994 till 2001. Since that year the MEP with Prime Minister Oduber rules again
