Haiti - Reconstruction : The prefabricated parliament, ready for April 20
Edmond Mulet, Special Representative of the Secretary General of the United Nations in Haiti, visited on Thursday, with the Secretaries of each House of Parliament, the construction site of the temporary buildings designed to house the Haitian Parliament. This work statted on March 2 should be completed April 20, 2011. These prefabricated buildings intended to allow the Senate and the House of Deputies to initiate the parliamentary work quickly, between the conclusion of the electoral process in April until the reconstruction of the new permanent building.

Realized by the Civil Engineering Section of the Minustah to the costs of US$800,000, these prefabricated, equipped with air conditioners, include: a large room of 440 square meters, that will have a capacity of 230 people which will house the National Assembly ; a room of 145 square meters which can accommodate sessions of the Senate of the Republic ; a premises for two meeting rooms that can be used to the meetings of parliamentary committees and an administrative space that can accommodate one hundred servants. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has contributed to this project by providing a high-powered generator to supply electricity to the Parliament, as well as computers for the services of the secretariat of Parliament.

"In these areas, we will be able, among other things, organize the work and meetings relating to the amendment of the Constitution of 1987", said Jean Ariel Joseph the Secretary General of the Senate, which according to him the work of amendment must begin at the end of the first session of the first year of the 49th Legislature. Immediately after the final publication of the results of the second round of elections expected for April 16, the focus will be placed on the welcoming activities of the newly elected who will integrate the two Houses. "From April 19 to 21, will be held the registration process of the 11 new senators so that on Monday 25 we can start with the validation of their powers".

As for the House of Deputies, its 99 new elected will follow seminars from April 19 to 21. "There will be training and information sessions at all levels. During this same period, the Chamber of Deputies will have also to organize the registration of all its newly elected" said Jean Ariel Joseph which stresses that "on April 26, we will proceed with the election of the new Bureaux : that of the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate" adding that "for the first time, all deputies will dress the same way, in white".
