On Wednesday, members of the Chamber of Deputies, Chaired by Gary Bodeau, received in Parliament a delegation of high-level ambassadors, members of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Ad Hoc Advisory Group on an annual mission in Haiti to evaluate each year the socio-economic situation and develop its next recommendations on the development of Haiti in the long term https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-24334-haiti-politic-high-level-mission-of-ecosoc-in-the-country.html

This important meeting was an opportunity for the two parties to discuss various points, including : the situation in Haiti, the growing insecurity, the absence of a Government, as well as the significant devaluation of the Gourde by compared to the US dollar (average acquisition rate of US for 92.22 Gourdes)

The members of the lower house bureau also discussed : governance, poverty, the economic crisis, gender equity, the electoral law, the budget and the upcoming expiration of the Haitian-Taiwanese agreement.

"The Lower House is not part of the problem, but rather of the solution", reminded those interlocutors the Deputy of Delmas Garry Bodeau explaining to the mission that the deputies try to sensitize their fellow senators on the need to endow the country a Government capable of providing solutions to the many evils that plague the country.

While it is true that he is not against the departure and replacement of Minujusth by a Special Political Mission, he believes that it must be more pragmatic.
