EVANS PAUL WANTS TO DEFUSE THE CRISIS - BELIZAIRE CASE
(Haiti Libre) -
In the arrest case of Deputy Arnel Bélizaire, Evans Paul the leader of KID (Konvasyon Inite Demokratik) thinks that it is good that deputy Bélizaire has been eleased, but it is necessary to find a way to defuse the political crisis that exists today in the country.
"...I think that it's a good thing that Deputy Bélizaire is released because he should not have been arrested. A part of the problem is resolved, but there is a second fundamental aspect of the conflict [...] between the executive and the legislative powers, which explains the reaction in each Chamber,... of the Deputies and the Senate.
I wish that the Executive plays with great elegance, ... that it has the courage to present to Parliament its' apologies. It would be a good way to defuse the political crisis that exists today in the country.
An apology does not solve everything,... an apology is a dimension of wisdom, especially if it is associated with a commitment to ensure that this type of action no longer happens. At that moment, we will not be obliged to make use of an interpellation [...]
I think that the authorities who are there now, it is not for this, that the people voted for them. They did not vote to have conflict between them. True, a serious thing occurred and we have condemned it at the level of the Alternative party, but we do not want it to become a permanent crisis, which will create a blockage and that the population will pay the consequences of this blockage.
This is what makes me ask, in addition to the release of deputy Arnel Bélizaire, that the Executive, with strength, present to the parliament its apologies [...] and the parliament, with the same strength, suspends the steps of interpellation that they are making, so that in reality the authorities take the country's priorities in hand, to meet the needs of the Haitian people."
