The demonstrations should take place this Monday, as the downfall of Jean Claude Duvalier’s dictatorship, which occurred in 1986 amid popular riots, is celebrated, and the term of the assassinated President Jovenel Moïse officially ends.

For the moment, the streets of Port-au-Prince, Delmas, Petion-Ville, Croix-des-Bouquets, Cite Soleil and Carrefour are empty and without vehicle traffic, while students, merchants and employees remain at home, and a strong police presence is observed.

In statements to the press this weekend, Henry, who took power two weeks after Moïse was assassinated, reiterated that a group -in reference to the signatories of the Agreement-, cannot pretend to appoint a President.

The signatories of the Montana Agreement, an initiative by the civil society and political parties that seek to solve the crisis in this country, asked the Joe Biden administration to withdraw the support to the head of Government, and insisted that the Executive headed by Henry will be unconstitutional from this Monday.
