Haiti - Politic : Sabotage of the agreement of January 11, 2015
"Kontra Pèp la disagrees against any hasty election (in 120 days), which can only worsen the crisis by pursuing further ulterior objectives to put away the majority of the population in the electoral lists already established poorly, to set a permanent CEP controlled by the enemies of the people, manufacturers of fake elections, and concoct, in an anti-democratic manner a new constitution to strengthen and legalize the selling off of national resources and international trusteeship.
We deplore the fact that even before consulting Haitian actors, upon arrival, the Council delegation has appealed for the holding of snap election, whereas it would be necessary to pave the way to arrive at a general election, credible and sovereign at the end of 2015, to lead us to a return to constitutional order [...]"
Furthermore, Kontra Pèp la inform the UN delegation of the malicious use of the agreement of January 11, the result of negotiations in which it participated and it has signed stating that "The agreement emphasized with black ink, the lack of consensus on the choice of prime minister and clearly stated that the legitimacy and effectiveness of the latter depended on the approval of Parliament [Article 17] https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-12922-haiti-politic-the-executive-signs-an-agreement-with-4-opposition-parties.html The parliamentary vacuum created from 12 January 2015 therefore invalidates and triggering the need to undertake new negotiations to achieve a real consensus on a new government and on the composition of a supervisory body of that government, involving political actors and civil society in order to create a favorable climate for elections are held."
Adding "We would like the Security Council can understand all the risks of such a policy in Haiti and the need to break with the tactics of power and agenda it runs, which will only result to push the country in an even deeper crisis. Once too often the attempt of a negotiated national solution was sabotaged with the complicity of the International sector. It is obvious that the government put in place, installed with the participation of the Core Group, has nothing to do with a consensus government as suggested in the report of the Consultative Commission that Mr. Martelly said endorse."
Letter signed by former Senator Jean William Jeanty, National Coordinator; Rudolph Prudent and Philefrant St. Naré, a member of the National Coordination.
