Caricom delegation to return to Haiti this week

Port-au-Prince, Dec 4 (Prensa Latina) The Group of Eminent Personalities (GEP) of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) will return to Haiti this week to try to mediate in the political crisis and reach an agreement, it was announced today.

From December 6 to 14, the delegation will meet in the capital with political, government and civil society representatives and will discuss a crisis resolution proposal presented during its last trip to the country.

The document introduces changes such as the replacement of the High Transitional Council (HCT) by a Transitional Council (TC) with presidential prerogatives and the formation of a Provisional Electoral Council (PEC) that respects the articles of the 1987 constitution.

The TC should help ensure good governance and will work in collaboration with the Prime Minister and the Council of Ministers during the transition period to ensure the improvement of the socio-economic conditions of the population, the provision of security and basic services.

It should also promote the protection of human rights and the rule of law, as well as accountability, reforms and the creation of a political environment conducive to the organization and holding of elections as soon as possible, according to a version of the text circulating on social networks.

Among its functions, the Transitional Council should have the task of countersigning decrees and ordinances with the members of the Government, as well as the agenda of the Council of Ministers, the appointment of the PEC and setting the date of the elections, among other missions.

It would be the fourth trip of the GEP to Haiti in an equal number of months to mediate in the crisis and reach an inclusive agreement in a context in which the positions of the politicians have been radicalized and calls for the resignation of Prime Minister Ariel Henry, who assumed power days after the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse, are growing.
