Haiti - Politic : The Senate Majority Group, rejects the demands of the 4 senators of the opposition
Recall that four senators of the opposition (Evalière Beauplan (PONT), Antonio Cheramy (VERITE), Ricard Pierre (Piti Dessalin) and Nenel Cassy (Famni Lavalas) who have defeated by two times the presentation session of the General Policy of the Prime Minister on Sunday 12 May https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-27715-haiti-politic-the-opposition-minority-forces-the-senate-to-postpone-the-ratification-meeting-of-the-pm.html and Tuesday, May 14 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-27730-haiti-flash-violence-in-the-senate-the-opposition-wins-a-2nd-victory-the-pm-ratification-postponed.html required as a prerequisite for the resumption in the calm of the session:
1) Presentation in the Senate of a full ministerial cabinet and without multiple positions as required by the law of November 8, 2006 repealing the 2005 decree. This law, which is an application of article 167 of the Constitution, condemns with the article 221 of this last the accumulated postition https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-27738-haiti-flash-president-cantave-apologizes-for-the-hideous-spectacle-in-the-senate.html ;
2) Withdrawal from the ministerial cabinet of the Ministers who have been part of the Government of Jean Henry Céant because according to the principle of the government solidarity prescribed by the Constitution, all the ministers of Céant were struck by the motion of censure voted by an overwhelming majority at the House of Representatives;
3) Making available to the 4-member group of all ministers' files for a thorough examination;
4) The urgent convening of a Conference of Extraordinary Presidents to rule on the bellicose behavior of Senator Joseph Lambert against our colleague Ricard Pierre at the meeting of May 14, 2019 while he was protesting the violation of the Constitution and the laws of the Republic.
The Senators recall in the preamble that there is no political bloc in the Senate called "Group of 4", stressing that the arguments used by the opposition senators are wrong.
Regarding point 1, the GSEP recalls once again that the "law of 8 November does not repeal the 2005 decree. Its final provisions only specifically repeal the texts that are contrary to it".
With regard to point 3, GSEP Senators recall that nowhere a bloc is allowed to exercise such a right, let alone individual senators, stressing that "This request constitutes a flagrant distortion of the Regulation [...]"
Furthermore, in response to point 4, the GSEP requests the Conference of Presidents to apply disciplinary sanctions against their colleagues as required by the Senate's rules of procedure, which they accuse of intentionally delaying the installation of the new Government, preventing the session from being held by inappropriate acts and behavior.
