The Curaçao general election of 2010 (formally: Curaçao island council election of 2010) was held on 27 August 2010. Early elections for the Curaçao island council were necessary because the island council failed to approve the Constitution of Curaçao with a two-thirds majority in the first reading. Before it could be adopted by a simple majority in the second reading, the Charter for the Kingdom of the Netherlands specified that a general election had to intervene.
Although the election was held for the island council of Curaçao, its newly elected members automatically became members of the Estates of Curaçao when Curaçao received country status within the Kingdom of the Netherlands on 10 October 2010.
The 21 members of the Estates are elected by proportional representation.
Although the Party for the Restructured Antilles(PAR) increased its number of seats from 7 to 8, the coalition it led lost its majority. Gerrit Schotte of the Movementu Futuro Korsou (MFK) formed a coalition with Movishon Antia Nobo (MAN) and Pueblo Soberano (PS) and thus became Curaçao's first Prime Minister on 10 October 2010.
Voter turnout was 65.81%.
