After many months of failed elections and election attempts, the Haitian government is unable to secure a policy on the future of the country’s government. The leaders of the Haitian government are now scrambling like many times before to come up with an agreement on how to lead the country forward. The current seating president, Michel Martelly’s, term will expire on February 7, 2016. President Martelly has stated that he does not desire to remain as Head of State after the established constitution date of February 7th.
The only option at this point is to establish an interim government that will help organize a successful election to replace president Martelly. To facilitate such process, the Martelly’s government has summoned the help of the organization of American States (“OAS”), which the Opposition also known as G8 refused to meet with. The G8 oppositions has stated that the “objective of the OAS is to control the Haitian people to establish another US base puppet government and is unable to play a mediating role in Haitian Crisis”.
Based on the administration advisors and the OAS’ recommendations the Martelly administration is making some moves in a way to ease the process of establishing the interim government. One of which is the resignation of the current Prime Minister and a meeting with the two cabinets prior to the February 7th deadline. Still the questions remain: “What good an interim government will do Anyway?” and “who will be taking part in it?” since the Opposition and the Tèt Kalé government refused to meet on a consensus.
