Give it up CEP, you can't win the argument over Discharge

Lawyers for the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) ruled this week that Former Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe lacks the required "discharge" to remain as a candidate in the next Presidential election. Members of the CEP have decided to the law regarding "Discharge" must be implemented. All candidates that have held positions managing public funds must obtain their décharge. There is only one exception: Members of the CEP who have held positions managing public funds do not need any décharge.


This is what many would call an arbitrary position on the part of the CEP. How do you feel requesting for something you yourself don't have? This is very dangerous to a democratic society when people in power think they have the freedom to select the laws they like and to implement them only when they want and under the conditions they select.

There are actually several names for this:
- Some may say that these people are above the law.
- Do as I say but not as do.

According to Matthew 7:5, "You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye".
