Haiti – FLASH : Privert convene parliamentarians to the extraordinary

Haiti Libre:

“Considering the urgency of the vote of certain acts deemed relevant” President a.i. Jocelerme Privert, by decree, convene parliamentarians to the extraordinary at a session to be held Tuesday, May 17, 2016

Presidential decree, agenda of the session :
“Given the items 92-1, 101, 105, 106, 107 and 136 of the Constitution;

Considering the urgency of voting certain acts deemed relevant;

The legislative body is convened to the extraordinary, Tuesday, May 17, 2016.

This extraordinary session will be devoted to examining and voting the following acts :

1- Draft of the Amending Finance Act 2015-2016;

2- 2- Draft Penal Code;

3- Draft Code of Criminal Procedure ;

4- Draft law on electronic commerce;

5- Bill establishing the Commune of Montrouis;

6- Proposal for a framework law on decentralization;

7- Bill on organization and functioning of the Ministry of the Environment;

8- Law proposal creating a basic public service in communal sections. “

Note that nothing appears in the agenda concerning the non holding of elections provided for in the agreement of 6 February and for good reason, contrary to what some parliamentarians say, nothing in the Agreement oblige the temporary President to explain the failure to respect the planned timetable concerning the absence or delay of elections within the framework of its mandate.

Moreover, for those who advocate the resignation of the Head of State a.i. on May 14, let’s recall that the term of the temporary President is of 120 days, as stipulated in the agreement of 6 February in its Article 7 “The mandate of the temporary President is up to 120 days from the date of installation. If necessary the National Assembly will take the necessary arrangements.”
Jocelerme Privert was installed as interim president Sunday, February 14

  1. Privert called this session to assure the Deputies and Senators that he was not going to “fire them.”

    It serves no other useful purpose.

    It doesn’t address the electoral process.

    He does not plan to leave and counts on the Deputies Senators’ support for Prolongation.

    What will the International Community do/

    I am not optimistic.
