Jacques Thimoléon Stevenson, New President of the Chamber of Deputies

Jacques Thimoléon Stevenson, the deputy of the coastal town Petit-Goâve has been elected as the new President of the Chamber of Deputies on January 15, 2014. He will take the rein of former President Jean Tolbert Alexis, the deputy of Croix-des-Bouquets. The new President Jacques Thimoléon was the former President of the pro-Martelly majority bloc "Parliamentarians for Stability and Progress" (PSP) in the Lower House, the seat has been presently replaced by Altès Toussaint, the deputy of Saint-Marc.


It is interesting to note that PSP had remained constantly supportive to the Martelly-Lamothe government during the tenure of Me Thimoléon. Thimoléon Stevenson is a good leader who as per common belief may be successful to find a way to oust the enemies of President Martelly. He is also a member of many other important committees like Decentralization and border Development, Commission Interior and Local government and a member of the Commission for Justice and Public Safety, of the Foreign Affairs Commission, Cults and Haitians living abroad.

In last year on March 13, 2013, when Me Thimoléon was the Deputy of Petit-Goâve, had disclosed the dissatisfaction of Haitian President Michel Martelly on his deputies of majority bloc in the Lower House PSP for not delivering his expected electoral council members. But then he denied all the information circulating in the corridors of Haitian Parliament that the President had plans to chastise such Deputies and Parliamentarians for not delivering desired result on stability and progress. He further added, the President rather had discussion on a number of projects and the entire chamber has agreed on a single selection to sit on the electoral council representing the legislature.
