PM TO THE SENATE THIS THURSDAY, ABOUT THE NATIONAL SECURITY FORCE
(Haiti Libre) -
Rodolphe Joazile, the President of the Senate confirmed having received the letter signed by the 6 senators, and having met with the Justice and Security Commission, through its President, Senator Youri Latortue;... who found it appropriate to respond favorably to this request. "On this basis, we wrote to the Prime Minister to convene him in plenary session for this Thursday, because it is an issue to which all the senators are interested [...] we have already signed the letter and we will send it to the Prime Minister, who will come Thursday [...]
Certainly the senators need information about how the army will be made, on the rumors around its formation, composition etc... [...] We sat with the President of the Republic on Friday and [...] and there will be other meetings that will take place on this topic [...] there are senators on the Justice and Security Commission who will reflect on this issue [with the Presidential Commission]. They said to me that they will present a report to the Assembly [...] at that time, the senators will have more information in hand.
The question [of the national security force] goes beyond the technicality. It is a political issue. That's why senators are demanding explanations. Senators still need information, because they are accountable in terms of information, in terms of services to the people who voted for them."
Senator Bastien Kély of the G16, unfavorable for the creation of a military force, considers it necessary that the Prime Minister explains to the Assembly, the plan of entry into service and the motivations of the Government on this national security force,.... while considering the latter should not be a priority, because the country faces more urgent needs.
