MARTELLY-CONILLE TO RENEW MANDATE OF IHRC
(Defend Haiti) -
PORT-AU-PRINCE - The Haitian government is about to submit to Parliament a bill calling to renew the Interim Commission for the Reconstruction of Haiti (IHRC), whose 18 months term has just expired.
The bill should soon be submitted to parliament by the new government requiring a one-year extension of the IHRC mandate; the Interim Commission chaired by Haitian Prime Minister with former U.S. President Bill Clinton.
Haitian President Michel Martelly has already met with a group of parliamentarians on the maintenance of the IHRC, according to the chairman of the Haitian House of Representatives, Deputy Sorel Jacinthe (Moron & Chamberllan/Inite).
"President Martelly has proposed a law demanding to renew this institution," said Deputy Jacinthe underlining that the president had campaigned against the IHRC when he was a candidate.
Recently president Martelly stated that "IHRC is a positive institution for Haiti, useful to progress with the reconstruction projects. It is the Commission that can help finding funds to do the job."
The Commission was created in the aftermath of the earthquake of January 12 at a meeting in New York of Friends of Haiti and international donors around the country's reconstruction.
