Haiti - Politic : The amendment of the electoral law blocked in the Senate
Tuesday, while 16 senators responded present to the roll call of one of the rare plenary sessions of the Upper House, in which was on the agenda among other things, the ratification of the amendment of the electoral law, this session could not be completed, Senator Jean Charles Moïse having reversed the quorum by leaving the Assembly.

In addition we learned that a delegation of the "Patriotic Movement of the Democratic Opposition" (MOPOD), which brings together the main opposition parties, met Tuesday 6 opposition senators in order to give them the support of MOPOD and define a common strategy against the Government...
