Michel Martelly said: Garry Conille does not meet residency requirement

Then if this is the case why did the president nominate Dr. Garry Conille for Prime Minister. According to Article 157 of the Haitian constitution, the Prime Minister of Haiti must reside in the country for five consecutive years. Does that mean the president does not have any respect for the Haitian constitution?


Is that true that "Loa en Haiti Se Sel Nan tet Moun Li Dansè"

According to President Michel Martelly, before nominating Dr. Garry Cornille, he took the advice of his legal team. The president also stated that the fact that Garry Conille has not resided in Haiti for the past five years is not a hidden history. However, Garry Conille pays taxes to the United Nations for Haiti.

The president also mentioned that he had to choose someone who is competent and capable.

What do you think?

Do you think it's more important to nominate someone capable and competent to the position of Prime Minister, whether or not that person meets all the requirements to become Prime Minister?

Do you think we should never violate the Haitian constitution?

Do you think instead we should revise the Haitian constitution?

Those leeches (senators) simply want the opportunity to keep on sucking the life out of the Haitian people.

However, the presidential nomination of prime ministers would not provide the right of passage for those leeches (senators) to carry on with their corrupted way of

I think it is time to see Haiti before everything Garry and so many others was qualify to be the next prime minister of Haiti.

The senators just need someone in their political party so they can find all the opportunities like they use to do in the past.
