Haiti - Politic : The G16, still divided after the meeting with Dr. Conille
Leaving the meeting, Dr. Garry Conille, was very pleased, refusing to comment on the meeting, he invited journalists to interview the Senators arguing for his part that "... it was an excellent meeting I am very pleased of discussions, and I'm out of that meeting really really satisfied [...] we discussed many things [...] I am always very confident as from the beginning..."
The Senator Evalière Beauplan [member of the G16] determines a vote in favor to a sharing of responsibility. Aware that the sovereign ministries are out of reach, the senator said that negotiations were not limited to ministerial positions, but also included the directorates general, the positions of secretary of state, charges d'affaires, of ambassadors and positions in diplomatic missions of Haiti, saying that the G16 could easily get the Ministry of Agriculture in the new government.
Despite this long meeting, some members of the group, still do not seem convinced of the explanation of Prime Minister-designate and it has not been possible to unify the positions of Senators of the G16 in favor of the candidate.

According to Senator Moïse, more optimistic than Senator Beauplan 75% of elected of G-16 would be in favor of the candidate for Prime Minister and that the G16 will bring to light its contradictions.
