Haiti’s socio-political crisis at an impasse

Port-au-Prince, Apr 7 (Prensa Latina) Both the government and the opposition in Haiti today lack legitimacy to undertake a transition capable of solving the socio-political crisis, assured former Prime Minister Evans Paul.

Paul, head of Government during the Martelly administration noted that this dichotomy complicates the situation of the country, and it is time for the various political actors to meet at a dialogue table.

‘Stop mortgaging the future,’ we are not masters of time, Paul underscored in a television program and regretted the youngsters whose education is compromised and the population which constitutes the main victim, he assured.

At the end of March, the ecumenical Religions for Peace organization offered to mediate a dialogue and stressed the urgent need for an understanding in the midst of the precarious socio-economic conditions of the people, the repeated cases of kidnapping, generalized insecurity and polarization of the political situation of the country.

In that regard, President Jovenel Moise called for unity, even in the midst of differences, and ensured that ‘we will not go anywhere without dialogue, without consensus.’

However, several opposition platforms distanced themselves from this approach and reiterated that Moise has been illegally in office since February 7, and that negotiations are only aimed at weakening popular mobilization.
