Commission of Electoral Evaluation Installed With Changes
Updated February 8, 2016 8:19 AM
On Thursday, December 17, President Martelly created a 5-member Independent Commission on Electoral Evaluation, with the power of section 136 of the Constitution and the Decree of 17 May 2005, to assess the condition of the country's remaining electoral process scheduled to be held on December 27, 2015. However, since the December 27, 2015 election was postponed and rescheduled for January 17, 2016, and some of the members of the commission and their political platforms were reluctant to participate, the commission has been reorganized. The unwilling members like, Manno Charlemagne (Joseph Emmanuel Charlemagne) and Konpè Filo (Anthony Pascal) were replaced by Me Gédéon Jean (representing the human rights sector) and the Pastor Louis Armand (representing the Protestant Church). The other three members of the commission are: Mgr Patrick Aris, the Mambo Euvonie Georges Auguste, and Rosny Desroches.
Earlier, the commission was given 3 days time to evaluate the situation and report to the executive and the CEP and recommend ways to overcome the economic-political impasse. However, as the election was postponed, on December 22nd, with the publication of a revised presidential decree, the commission's reporting period was extended (8 continuous days since December 22nd, from earlier 3 days) till December 30, 2015.
