Once again, another round of selecting a new Prime Minister Designee and going through ratification process as Haitian lawmakers rejected President Michel Martelly's second choice for Haiti's Prime Minister. The "Haitian Joudalist" has learned that the vote results were as expected, with the 16 Senators who have been outspoken against the nomination of Bernard Gousse for Prime Minister, voting "No" and 14 Senators voting for the ratification.
This is a case of "Deja Vue".
Anmwey! Gran Neg ap Fe Politik, Malere Ap mouri Ak Grangou"
This is the second time that Haitian lawmakers rejected the choice of president Michel Martelly for prime Minister.
With the nomination of Bernard Gousse hanging in the air, some popular names have surfaced. According to defend.ht Jean Pierre Batiste, better known as Jean Tatoune is threatening manifestation in the streets of Haiti if the Senate does not ratify Bernard Gousse as Prime Minister. The site further reported that Jean Tatoune said that he wants the senators to hear him clearly because as he stated: " I will not tell the Senators twice".
Doesn't this sound like an order to you?
Mr. Jean Pierre Batiste AKA Jean Tatoune thinks that the country has gone for too long without a Prime Minister and feels that it comes to a point where he must use his power to get things done.
The "Haitian Joudalist" was informed that the Haitian president Michel Martelly is getting very close to make his final selection for the Prime Minister of Haiti. An article that just appeared on defend.ht stated that Michel Martelly has selected Bernard H. Gousse as his next prime minister.
We do not know for certain if this is accurate. The "Haitian Jourdalist will verify this information and will let you know as soon as we have additional information
When will the selection be made official?
According to the reactions of some Haitian Senators and Deputies before the final selection was made, if in fact the president has selected Bernard H. Gousse to become the next Prime Minister, the confirmation process will be as challenging for the president as it was the case with his former Prime Minister nominee, Gerard Daniel Rouzier.
As the Haitian president Michel Martelly is in the process of selecting a new Prime Minister for Haiti after the defeat of his previous candidate Daniel Rouzier, three names have made the final. According to some reliable sources for the "Haitian Joudalist", the three candidates for the post are Bernard Gousse, Jean Henry Céant and Jean Max Bellerive.
You can definitely bet your bottom dollar that one of these three will be proposed for the post of Prime Minister. The executive branch is currently in negotiation with both houses (Upper and Lower house) so that a final candidate can be selected between Bernard Gousse, Jean Henry Céant and Jean Max Bellerive.
" I am open for discussion as to the future of the earthquake reconstruction commission ", said recently the new Haitian prime Minister designed Daniel-Gerard Rouzier. This is definitely a shift from his previous statement.
Did he really think he could do that?
To put things in perspective, in a previous interview with the press, the Prime Minister designated, Daniel-Gerard Rouzier, expressed his desire to replace the current earthquake reconstruction commission that is co-shared by the former United States President Bill Clinton and former Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive.
Would you agree with me that the decision to get ride of the commission was Rouzier's first "Boubou" on the job that he does not even have yet?
Haiti Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive submitted his resignation to the new President Michel Martelly. He wants the new president to be free in the selection of his Prime Minister.
In the meantime, The "Haitian Joudalist" has learned that the new Prime Minister for Haiti has already been chosen. Haitian President Joseph Michel Martelly has appointed businessman Daniel Gerard Rouzier as the new Prime Minister of Haiti. This information came from Miami Herald.
Sak Pa Kontan...Embake!!!!
As you may remember, former Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive was co-chair of the post-earthquake Interim Recovery Commission with Bill Clinton.
