Letter from the G6 :
“Honourable Senator Dieuseul Simon Desras
President of the National Assembly
By expressing the wish that 2015 be for us a time of Unity et Commitmentfor the national cause, we ask you to learn about our political position and to inform the Haitian Nation.
By extending our best wishes to all citizens and other parliamentarians, we take this opportunity to explain our impossibility to participate in the National Assembly today.
Under no circumstances, we will, by our presence, endorse the unilateral choice of Mr. Evans Paul as Prime Minister. Because, the current political crisis requires serious negotiations with the real political actors needed to organize good elections during this year. This inevitably involves, among others, the establishment of a government composed of credible personalities and the formation of a Electoral Council according to the spirit of Article 289 of the Constitution.
Assured that you will understand the appropriateness of our position aimed at avoiding for the country a situation of total chaos, please, Honorable President, to kindly inform the President of the Republic that once found, this consensus will allow us other Senators to come together in a National Assembly to :
A) Vote the general policy of a Prime Minister of consensus;
B) Vote on the amendments to the electoral law;
C) Ratify international instruments in accordance with the Constitution;
D) Ratify the choice of Ambassadors;
E) and assume all other constitutional responsibilities;
Receive Mr. President the assurance of our availability at the service of the Common Fatherland.
Done at Port-au-Prince, January 5, 2015.
Senator Jean-Baptiste Bien-Aimé
Senator Pierre Franky Exius
Senator Jean William Jeanty
Senator Jean Charles Moïse
Senator Wesner Polycarpe
Senator Joseph Joël John”
