According to the platforms including Mouvman peyizan Papay, Mouvman peyizan nasyonal kongrè Papay, Tèt kole Ti peyizan ayisyen and the Regional Coordination of Organizations of the Southeast, the current Prime Minister Ariel Henry cannot participate in that executive because his name is linked to the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse.

“Ariel Henry must make himself available to answer the questions of justice,” they wrote in a communiqué in which they invited all structures seeking change to organize mobilizations to pressure for the installation of a new government.

According to 4G Kontre, the socio-economic crisis has worsened in Haiti with inflation exceeding 24 percent, while three quarters of the population is facing starvation. With 50 percent of citizens dependent on agriculture, the country produces only 35 percent of its annual needs, the organization complained.

With only three weeks to go before February 7, there are several agreements calling for the installation of a new administration, while the Prime Minister calls for dialogue and assures that there is no constitutional way to install a president.

The day before, economist Fritz Alphonse Jean and former senator Edgard Leblanc Fils presented their documents to the National Transitional Council to aspire to the position of head of state of the interim government.

Henry, for his part, insisted on holding elections as the only way to return to democracy, and called for putting aside fratricidal struggles for power.
