Haiti - Politic : The PM in Thomonde

On Monday, the Haitian Prime Minister Mr. Joseph Jouthe and the Minister of the Environment Mr. Abner Septembre visited the commune of Thomonde (Dept. of the Center). During this tour, these authorities as well as other technical executives of the delegation visited the school of the sisters of Thomonde, the police station of the commune where the PM gave a vehicle to the person in charge and the river of Thomonde which threatens the city. It was also an opportunity for the members of the delegation to receive the complaints of the leaders of the commune, during a community meeting at the presbytery of Thomonde.

This community meeting allowed the members of the population to present the major priority challenges of the commune which require urgent responses from the Government. The market, the public square, the problem of birth registration, employment for young people, the reforestation of the slopes of the sources, the sanitation of the city and the access to water to irrigate the land are among others the problems identified by the population.

At the end of the day, technicians from the Ministry of the Environment visited sites for the possible installation (after study) in the commune of two solar-powered water pumping systems. With a pumping capacity of 1300 gallons of water per minute and watering 150 hectares of land, these solar pumps, which will be installed in the commune of Thomonde, will help improve the living conditions of the general population.

It should be noted that the delegation from the Ministry of the Environment will spend three days in the Center department, in order to continue with the exploration visit.

Haiti - Politic : Constitutional reform and elections, the Senate advocates dialogue

In a note, the Senators of the Republic advocate dialogue and consultation to facilitate constitutional reform and the organization of elections.

Note from the Haitian Senate :

“The Senate is very attentive and very sensitive to the opinions expressed by the various sectors of national life on the presidential decree of September 18, 2020 appointing the members of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-31835-haiti-flash-appointment-of-cep-members-and-mandate.html

Subjects so delicate as constitutional revision or general elections deserve to be treated with wisdom and serenity and above all with a strong dose of patriotism and a very high sense of national interest.

The halt or the delay arranged by the abstention of the Court of Cassation from receiving the oath of the advisers offers to all the actors animated by a sincere and resolute patriotism the opportunity of a deep reflection and an honest approach to the search for a constructive agreement on this great file of collective importance.

The Senate of the Republic invites all actors, protagonists and antagonists, to objectively assess the data of this perilous situation and to urgently take the path of dialogue and consultation for a lasting solution to the recurring crises which maintain the country in chaos, political instability and the pangs of poverty.

Aside any plans for reform or constitutional revision, local authorities need to regain popular legitimacy to fully enjoy their autonomy in the exercise of their mandate, and Parliament to regain its full strength to fulfill its fundamental mission of legislation and control and to restore the balance of power.

The Senate remains convinced that dialogue and consultation constitute the nourishing sap of democracy and the rule of law and remain the only way likely to bring the country back to respect for the rules of the democratic game and promote political stability, social peace and economic growth.”

It encourages actors, especially young people, women and men to work together to build a society that evolves in peace, thus offering an environment favorable to sustainable development.”
