Haiti - Politic : Jovenel Moïse will not go to Gonaïves (official)
End of the rumors, it is now official, President Moïse will not go on January 1, 2020, to the place d’armes of Gonaïves to commemorate the 216th anniversary of the Independence of Haiti (January 1, 1804 - 2020). The Head of State decided to celebrate the independence day in Port-au-Prince as had already mentioned Jean-Osner Amisial, the Departmental Delegate of Artibonite https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-29645-haiti-news-zapping.html .

Monday on a radio of the capital, Jules Charles Faustin, the Political Advisor to the Head of State made the announcement, stressing "January 1 is a national holiday that deserves to be celebrated throughout solemnity required. This is not the time to enter into confrontations," explaining that nothing forces the President in the Constitution to celebrate the independence of Haiti in historical sites recalling that during his 2nd term, President Préval did not for example, go to Vertières.

Responding to threats from the opposition to prevent Moïse from going to Gonaïves and to those who might think that the Head of State acts out by weakness or is afraid of going to Independence City, Faustin recalled that the Head of State had made two visits to Gonaïves on December 14 and 28.

For his part, the senator of the radical opposition Youri Latortue welcomed the absence of the Head of State in Gonaïves. An opposition that will celebrate Independence Day with a patriotic vigil and a ceremony in memory of activists who fell during anti-government protests in the Artibonite.
