MOPOD movement transformed into political party
When the group met in late January, it was to discuss the current situation of politics in the society and also to put themselves in an appropriate position in the inter-Haitian dialogue to take place between the civil society, the political parties and the executive. They ended up resolving to turn their movement, previously only a means of bringing together the main opposition parties of RDNP, PROP, OPL, and INITE, into a new political party in order to secure the resignation of the current regime of President Michel Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe.
According to the movement's general coordinator, Jean André Victor, the current government's track record shows they have failed disastrously. While the MOPOD has now joined the race as competition, its mandates have not changed. The group still calls for an election and finds the current government guilty for failing to fulfil the task of facilitating one this year.
Not on board with the shift in agendas is the leader of Konvansyon Inite Demokratik (KID), Paul Evans. His chalked his withdrawal from the MOPOD down to the KID's inability to be part of for dialogue and anti-dialogue approaches at the same time.
