Haiti - Politic : Bernard Gousse, vagueness and uncertainty persists...
On July 14, Me Gousse should already present his file but he had requested a postponement for a week because he needed a "little time to better constitute his file."
Yesterday took place a meeting of more than 6 hours at the Karibe Convention Center, between 15 senators from the group of 16, the Senator Moïse Jean-Charles (North) was absent, who have declared publicly opposed to the candidacy of Me Gousse, and the President Martelly.
Before entering a meeting, the Senator Evalière Beauplan said "I am here to negotiate the after Gousse." For the Senator Jean-Baptiste Bien Aimé" there is no question for the group of sixteen to change its mind. We remain faithful to our position until the session of ratification. The sixteen petitioners will vote against Bernard Gousse," the Senator Dera Simon Dieusseul says that "there was no defect in the group of sixteen," for Kelly Bastien "this meeting is an opportunity to develop a comprehensive framework of governance for the country."
Shortly after the beginning of the meeting Mr. Martelly has called Gousse to participate in the meeting, at the half of the meeting Mr. Gousse leave the room, he seemed disappointed and made no comments to the press, a silence that can be interpreted [?]
At the end of the meeting the 15 Senators and the President Martelly have made a press conference during which the President of the Republic described the meeting as historic, because there was a softening of position on both side, a change tone, in addition he announced that in the next 24 hours, the nation will know the decision that will be taken, what will be done about the file of ratification of the Prime Minister-designate, Me Bernard Gousse, describing the decision that was taken of courageous without unveiled it to the press.
The 15 senators present also expressed their determination to work with the Head of State, while the Head of State seems to be more accommodating and tolerant. But working with the Head of State does not necessarily mean ratify Me Gousse.
The vagueness and uncertainty persists after that meeting, Me Bernard Gousse will file his documents today ? If his documents are in conformity with the constitution, the Senator will vote for him or not ? Is the group of 16 changed his mind ?
At the same time in Cap Haitien a hundred demonstrators pro-Gousse, expressed their support to the Prime Minister-designate, while accusing the parliamentarians of being a source of blocking for the country.
