The platform offered to intercede in the conflict aggravated by the discussion on the end of the constitutional mandate of President Jovenel Moïse, which the opposition structures consider to have ended last February.
In this regard, the Political Directorate of the Democratic Opposition, which gathers several moderate and radical parties, reiterated that it has ‘no intention of betraying the demands of the population nor of engaging in the repetition of sterile discussions.
According to the group, which led the recent anti-government demonstrations and the denunciations to the constitutional reform promoted by the head of State, the negotiations are only aimed at weakening the popular mobilization and granting pardon ‘to those who illegally occupy the National Palace.’
For several social and union platforms, as well as lawyers’ associations, the solution to the crisis passes through the resignation of the president and the establishment of a transitional government.
However, Moïse repeatedly refused to hand over power to an interim administration. ‘Choose a leader, go to the elections and ask the people to vote for that person. That is democracy and that is what we want for our country,’ said Mathias Pierre, minister delegate for Electoral Affairs.
The Government also insisted on the need for unity and to establish a sincere dialogue, despite the existing differences.
