(Haiti Libre) -

Last Thursday, on the sidelines of the interpellation session, of the Minister of Justice and the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Michel Brunache; Senator Joseph Lambert had cited as an example of decisions made too quickly,.... the interpellation of the Secretary of State while the latter was not yet invested in his functions...

In response to this statement, Edgard Leblanc, former Senator and coordinator of the Organization of People in Struggle (OPL, who condemned the arrest of Deputy BĂ©lizaire that was done, according to him outside the prescriptions of the Constitution, has wished to clarify "...the Parliament, the Chamber of Deputies and the Chamber of the Senate act within their constitutional prerogative. Therefore, they do it in all legality. When the Ministers are named, they are in function, and even if the Secretary of State has not yet been installed, he has been named [...], and therefore he is responsible and in charge [installed or not], if something happens in the course of his duties.

In its role of monitoring, the interpellations made ​​by the Parliament are made in all legality and I think that's a good thing that the Parliament has reacted. The interpellation, do not forget, must end with a vote [of confidence or of censure]. We just want, as part of a rule of law, to uphold the law in all circumstances, and this requires much more reason than emotion...

[...] The Prime Minister must come out of his silence, and of his frustrations to play his role as a conductor. There is no government, ... everyone can see. There is a Prime Minister and a Chief of Government. They should behave as such and try to take things in hand..."
