Haiti - FLASH : Turnaround of core Group in favor of the PM named Ariel Henry
To this end, he strongly encourages the Prime Minister named Ariel Henry https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34151-haiti-flash-ariel-henry-new-prime-minister-ai-official-update-6-19-am.html to continue the mission entrusted to him to form such a Government.
While Haiti faces serious perils, "the members of the Group express the wish that all political, economic and civil society actors in the country fully support the authorities in their efforts to restore security on the throughout the country, including in areas currently plagued by gang violence, to organize free, fair, transparent and credible legislative and presidential elections as soon as possible, and to ensure that every citizen benefits from adequate state services."
A disconcerting turnaround of the core Group after Helen La Lime, the Special Representative of the Secretary General of the United Nations and Head of the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH) told the United Nations Security Council on July 8 that the Prime Minister ai Claude Joseph was the responsible leader, https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34187-haiti-un-helen-la-lime-declared-that-it-is-claude-joseph-would-lead-haiti.html citing the amended Constitution of Haiti of 1987 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34165-haiti-assassination-of-jovenel-moise-what-says-the-constitution.html
A UN spokesperson declined to comment on Core's position, except to recall that the UN is part of the Core Group that issued the statement. On his side the OAS declared "For the moment, there is nothing more to say than what the declaration says."
Second turnaround, Ariel Henry has just been informed in a correspondence dated July 16 that the signatories of the National Agreement Protocol (PEN) of the opposition and of the Civil Society, were withdrawing from him their supports
Letter from the signatories of the National Memorandum of Understanding :
"Pétion-ville, July 16, 202 l
Mr. Prime Minister appointed,
Following today's meeting, the members of the Political Opposition and of Civil Society, signatories of the National Protocol of Understanding (PEN), hasten to inform you that they take note of your desire to form a Government without taking into account the two-headed character of the executive with a number of figures already criticized in public opinion with their political project rejected for more than three years by the population.
This meeting did not allow to detect either, any inclination to satisfy the popular demands, among others the cancellation of the decrees and decrees liberticide and antidemocratic, the holding of various trials of the cases Petrocaribe, CIRH etc... carried in the ten departments ofthe country and in the diaspora through massive protest demonstrations.
Indeed, the exaggerated rise in insecurity, the massacres perpetrated in working-class neighborhoods, summary executions, the illegal detention of opposition activists, repeated political persecution, the catastrophic management of State affairs, the project illegitimate and illegal to endow the country with a new made-to-measure constitution by referendum and the fraudulent organization of general elections under any condition : such is the damning picture that the main chosen of your new government bear in their liabilities. in the making.
Also, noting that you have deliberately chosen to deviate from the terms of the said protocol, the signatories of the PEN are obliged to withdraw their support from you and to continue an inclusive dialogue with the forces of the Nation in order to conclude a political agreement for a peaceful Haitian resolution to the crisis.
