Haiti - FLASH : Jovenel Moïse wants a new Constitution before the elections
On Friday, Jovenel Moïse in an address to the Nation pre-recorded and broadcast on the National Television of Haiti (TNH), said that it was urgent to endow the country with a new constitution before talking about elections.

Recalling that it is during a referendum that Haitians will decide whether it accept or reject the new Constitution "If the people say yes during this referendum, the next elections will be organized with this new Constitution."

According to the Head of State, the current Constitution "divides us and does not correspond to the reality of the country". He believes that the current Constitution "is like a pact of corruption signed between a category of people in the country" emphasizing the great imbalance between the power of Parliament, the Executive and the Judiciary" and stressing that in the current Constitution the diaspora is excluded from political life in Haiti...

For President Moïse "The country deserves a modern Constitution, adapted to the demands and challenges that await the Nation in the 21st century. We will keep the good democratic legacies left to us by the 1987 Constitution. The new Constitution should be adapted to our culture, simple, clear, easily applicable [...]"

To get there, Moïse stressed that all actors must agree on how to change the Constitution, while at the same time, the opposition is shouting loud and clear that there is will have no dialogue with Jovenel Moïse. For his part, the Head of State on the contrary confirmed that talks with important leaders of the opposition and some of his fiercest opponents had been underway for 3 months, without however mentioning a name...

In order to reassure those who believe that this new Constitution is a maneuver by the Head of State to remain in power, Moïse declared "[...] Today, I make a solemn commitment in front of the country and the whole world. I am not asking to change the Constitution for the sake of benefits. I will not be a candidate in the next elections [...]"
