Haitian government and opposition resume political negotiations

Haitian government and opposition resume political negotiations

Port-au-Prince, May 13 (Prensa Latina) After a stalemate of several months, Haiti's main political forces resumed negotiations, and meetings between government and opposition are expected this weekend, one of the parties announced.

Prime Minister Ariel Henry and the organizer of the Montana Accord Magalie Comeau Denis held a meeting on Wednesday for almost three hours to agree on the main points to be discussed at the next meeting, a member of the monitoring office of the agreement signed by broad sectors of civil society confirmed.

The two factions met for the last time at the beginning of the year, shortly after the election of economist Fritz Jean as president of an eventual transitional government, elections which were rejected by the government.

However, the situation of insecurity with a wave of gang-driven violence that practically encircles the capital, and the recent death of at least a hundred people during clashes between rival armed groups, puts back on the table the need for a real and effective political agreement.

“We are in an untenable situation. Inside Montana they say that we can go no further. You have to fix responsibilities and you have to move on,” Ted Sit-Dic, a member of the Montana Accord Monitoring Office, told the Magik9 Jacques radio program.

Haiti has been mired in a political crisis for several years, which escalated after the assassination in July of President Jovenel Moïse, a crime that reinforced the institutional vacuum.
