Haitian political forces calls for general uprising
Port-au-Prince, Jan. 14 (Prensa Latina) As February 7 is approaching, the date on which the opposition is considering the Haitian President Jovenel Moïse should resign, political forces are calling Thursday for a general uprising.
The Dessalinian Popular Movement (MOPOD) asked Hatians to rise up on Friday against what they consider as a corrupt and illegitimate regime, and then reach a political agreement with separate sectors that will lead to stability.
'If a country has no stability, there is no investment. Without investment there is no development, and without development it is impossible to improve people's living conditions,' André Victor, MOPOD´s general coordinator, stated.
André Victor spoke harshly against Moïse, whom he accuses of not promoting domestic production, and who is thrusting the whole nation into extreme poverty.
Like Victor, other opposition leaders speak out for a demonstration schedule to lobby the president's resignation and allow the establishment of a transitional government to be reached by a political agreement.
In addition to MOPOD, the Democratic and Popular Sector and the Directorate of the Democratic Opposition, called for taking to the streets through February 7. The date commemorates the 35 years since the end of the dictatorship and the day the president regularly takes up office.
Moïse, however, has already dismissed his ouster in near future and reiterated that 2021 is a crucial year for Haiti, which will face elections and constitutional change .
