Diaspora withdraws support for Haitian opposition president

Diaspora withdraws support for Haitian opposition president

Port-au-Prince, Feb 2 (Prensa Latina) Hatiain diaspora platforms have withdrawn their support for Fritz Jean, an economist elected by the opposition to lead a transitional government in Haiti, according to a communiqué released on Wednesday.

These platforms had nominated Jean as the provisional president, after the Haitian Unity Summit held in Louisiana, the United States, concluded on January 17, with a representation of several associations of the Diaspora.

Two weeks later and after the economist was ratified by the signatories of the Montana Agreement on Sunday, the group broke up with Jean, who was also a former governor of the Central Bank, and argued that he did not implement his election to serve the country at the highest level of the State.

A few days before, the diaspora platforms called to merge the Montana Agreement with the proposals by the Ariel Henry Government, which also gathered hundreds of sociopolitical organizations, in view of finding a solution to the crisis.

For those associations, no party or political group has sufficient capacity to solve the country’s multidimensional crisis.

Although the opposition intends to form the new executive on Monday to commemorate the 36th anniversary of the fall of the dictatorship and the end of mandate of assassinated President Jovenel Moïse, current Prime Minister Ariel Henry has not yet made any pronouncement on the initiative of his opponents.
