Haiti - Politic : Parliament forms its Permanent Commissions

Wednesday, the two Houses of Parliament have separately gathered in plenary to constitute the Permanent Commissions.

In the Senate it was the second time a plenary session was held (since 20 January), 22 Senators were present at the roll call where only the Senator Dieupie Chérubin (KID) was absent. During this session in which more than two hours were devoted to what should be the agenda… Senators finally constituted 13 Permanent Commissions (less than the 18 established in Article 172 of the Senate Regulation) . The minority Group obtained the presidency of 6 Commissions and the Majority group of 7. It is now up to the various political blocs to appoint the President of each commission under their control.

At the Chamber of Deputies, a meeting was also held to constitute the various Permanent Commissions, which unlike the Senate are up from 12 to 20 Commissions. However, unlike the Senate, the meeting did not go well and was suspended at the request of members of the “Parliamentary Alliance for Haiti” (APH) commonly known as G48, when it was introduced the Special Commission that was to be responsible for examining the documents of the Prime Minister named. A suspension perceived by the majority as an act of “runaways” of APH.
