Jacques Edouard Alexis recalled that the group has always been favorable to the formation of a provisional government and not of transition to manage the conduct of good elections with a new Electoral Council.

He also informed that the provisional government, whose group claims the installation is constitutional under Haitian law which is not the case according to him, for the amended election law, which would allow the head of the State to remain in power until May 14 (when he was sworn in 2006) - Remember that the constitution says the February 7 as the end of presidential mandate, but also refers to the period of 5 years of this mandate. It is on this last detail that the law allowing President Préval to stay until May 14, 2011, law voted by parliament and the Senate in May 2010.

For his part, Jean-Henry Céant reminded to the Head of State, by organizing the elections of 28 November, he pledged to leave office the February 7, "Mr. Préval can not use any constitutional ploy to justify its possible continuation to the head of state beyond the February 7"

In addition, Jacques Edouard Alexis said that the group does not recognize, as the Haitian Constitution, the expert mission of the Organization of American States (OAS) to conduct an audit of minutes. He said that the OAS is part of the problem and can not, under any circumstances, claim to be part of the solution. "We do not recognize this mission, nor the second round, that one wants to impose to us, It is necessary to have a provisional government to hold new elections" he says.

For his part, Charles Henri Baker, questioned the validity of the unilateral assessment by the OAS, of the election results of November 28 described as fraudulent. Believing that any serious investigation should lead to the cancellation of 90% of the minutes and therefore the poll "The electoral law was not applied, it cannot be question of recount of the minutes from operations of ballot stuffing".

The group of 12, called the population to remain mobilized to defend their rights, being convinced that "the parody of November 28th will not pass and will be cancelled".
