The president of the Deputy Chamber, Gary Bodeau, said that he is not afraid of being involved in the appointment of ministers under the new government. He further argued that it would be preferable that important positions of the public administration are entrusted to competent personalities. The evaluation of competence will likely be done by people like him and his peers.

Haiti Chamber of Deputies passed amended electoral law

The El Rancho Accord

Without much surprise to anyone, Haiti's lower chamber of deputies passed the amended electoral law on Tuesday, April 1, 2014. Will the Haitian do the same?

I don't think so!

The El Rancho agreement signed on March 14 and 19, 2014 between the Executive and the Legislative Powers, as well as several Political Parties under the auspices of the Episcopal Conference of Haiti is taking its course. As the executive branch is currently under some heat to hold election this year, they are now doing all in their capacity to make it happen.

Now it is up to the Senate to vote on the amended electoral law. We all know already that there are six of the 20 Senators who completely objects to the El Rancho agreement. Does anyone know how this will end up? Will article 12 be implemented?

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.
