D-1 BEFORE THE RATIFICATION ASSEMBLY OF LAURENT LAMOTHE
(Haiti Libre) -
While presentation of the report of the Special Commission responsible for examining the documents of the Prime Minister-designate, will take place tomorrow Thursday at the Lower House, before the Assembly of Deputies, for a favorable vote or not of the ratification of Prime Minister-designate, Laurent Lamothe, Deputy Jean Tholbert Alexis declared Tuesday that the GPR block had not yet taken a position, and no voting instructions had until now been given.
Deputy Alexis said, that in the framework of negotiations, the GPR had to meet on Wednesday the Prime Minister-designate, an approach consistent with the internal rules of the House, he said. The Deputy stated that the concern of most of his colleagues is to give the country a new government quickly, but added, that his words did not mean that the majority would vote in the same sense or not in the ratification of the candidate for Prime Minister.
Levaillant Louis-Jeune, President of the Chamber, on Monday, had denounced the haste in the work of the Commission, noting that it had taken only 48 hours to complete the report; doubting the seriousness of it, wondering if the members of the Commission had really taken the time to investigate the documents of the Prime Minister... Deploring the lack of recourse of the Office of the Chamber facing this situation...
For his part, the Deputy President of the Special Commission denies any eagerness of Commissioners, explaining that the Commission was assisted by experts, and that he and his colleagues took 11 days to do their jobs.
