Senator Andris Riché proposed change in the Provisional Electoral Council

On Wednesday, the dialogue between the Executive and the Senate failed, which made President Martelly, through a request from the Senate President, Senator Simon Dieuseul Desras, grant an ultimate and small delay to the Senators. The Senate president is trying again to convince the opposition senator members of G6, Jean-Baptiste Bien-Aîmé (NorthEast), FranckyExius (South), Jean-Charles Moïse (North), WestnerPolycarpe (North), Jean William Jeanty (Nippes) and John Joël Joseph (West),aboutvice-president of the Senate, Senator Andris Riché's, proposal. The proposal had been presented before the house on Tuesday and was supported by majority of the senators.


In his presentation, Senator Andris Riché had proposed a change of two members in the Provisional Electoral Council--a representative of the Parliament and one of the Superior Council of the Judiciary (CSPJ). He also suggested the maintenance of Me Néhémy Joseph (Senate) and Léopold Berlanger (CSPJ) in the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP).

Senator Riché's proposal is consistent with the El Rancho agreement. This is according to the article seven of the agreement.However, the maintenance of the two, Me Néhémy Joseph (Senate) and Léopold Berlanger (CSPJ), has also brought controversy, since the two refused to take their oaths due to different reasons. Both of them tried to explain the reason as to why they didn't take their oaths but their letters are yet to be responded.

It has been only three months since the El Rancho agreement, and the implementation of article seven seems to have taken shape with the majority support, but this is subject to G6 members.
