Haiti - Politic : The GPR loses its majority in favor of the  RPC...
The Deputy Fritz Chéry, President of the Grouping of Parliamentarians for Change (RPC), announced earlier this week that the Group of Parliamentarians for Renewal (GPR) is no longer a majority in the lower house. In this new political bloc (RPC), 59 deputies, who identify themselves as the "functional majority", cohabit alongside the Deputies for the progress and the Democracy (PDP), of Ansanm nou fò and a dozen of deputies who have defected from the GPR.

Although the RPC is not for the moment, registered to the Office of the Lower House, it represents a force capable of influencing the debate. "What interests us is the smooth running of the country", said the Deputy Chéry, who declined to reveal the position of the new RPC on the ratification of Prime Minister-designate, Dr. Garry Conille.

The Deputy Danton Léger, President of the new block Ansanm nou fò, has wished to clarify that "this new group is not Presidential", but that it constitutes a functional majority, which will have the task of making more efficient the lower house and to ensure a quorum allowing the country to adopt new laws.

For his part, Alexis Tolbert, President of the GPR, contradicts the statements of Deputy Chéry, and claims that the GPR is still the parliamentary group which is the majority in the lower House.
