CSPJ Installs Max Elibert

The Superior Council of Judicial Power (CSPJ) in Haiti is now pinning its hopes on a new nine-member panel to enhance the judicial system in the country. Max Elibert is one of the nine officials comprising the panel. He, along with the other members, was inaugurated during a ceremony at the School of Magistrates. Elibert, who was elected by his peers, is the judge at the Court of Appeals of Les Cayes.


The CSPJ members, including Elibert, now carry the responsibility to recruit and sharpen the skills of new court employees. They also hold the authority to conduct investigations involving court employees if necessary.
Elibert joined forces with other officials such as Anel Alexis Joseph, who is the President of the Court of Cassation. The other members are Antoine Norgaisse, Thiers Malette, Gustave Pharaon, Jean Alix Civil, Jean Etienne Mercier, and Nehemie Joseph.

The creation of the new CSPJ panel is believed to pave the way for the separation of power among the judicial, legislative, and executive branches. It is expected to help restore public confidence on the judicial system. Before the establishment of the CSPJ, Anel Alexis Joseph believed that there had been no proper distribution of power among the three branches. The judiciary has always been a power under the Executive. With the panel consisting of Elibert and other capable officials, the judiciary will have more independence, which is important in its efficiency.

Many officials, even the United States Embassy and the United Nations, find the development a huge step for the government of President Michel Martelly.
