In the absence of the institutions concerned with security, among others the PNH, FAd'H, AGD, migration... without the panels of experts announced, at the end of these 2 days a "Joint declaration on the steps to be taken" summary of the two days was presented at the end of this Forum...

In summary, only things that we have been hearing in words for months without any visible results... No new ideas...

We will have to build sufficient consensus, at the national level, on each of the points to be modified, and organize broad consultations, so that our compatriots adhere to the changes that will be proposed.

[...] The first task of the next CEP will be to organize a popular consultation in order to validate the modifications made. This necessary and indispensable step will have to be taken in a short period of time, because the organization of the general elections depends on it.

The time has come to move forward and we will move forward. 'Nou pra l retounen balon an nan pye pèp ayisyen an, nan eleksyon'. It is the people who will have the last word in matters of their leaders [...]"
