Haiti: Violence in the Senate, the opposition wins a 2nd victory, the PM ratification postponed

Tuesday the ratification session of the General Policy of the Prime Minister Jean Michel Lapin put in continuation last Sunday

But from the 2nd point of the agenda the real problems started. In Lapin’s Cabinet, four Government personalities obtained two ministerial portfolios. In addition to Prime Minister Lapin, who is in charge of the portfolio of Culture and Communication, four other ministers are each endowed with two portfolios :


  • Ronald G. Décembre has been entrusted with the Economy and Finance (MEF) Finance and the Planning and External Cooperation (MPCE) portfolios;
  • Guy François Junior for the Ministry of Tourism and Haitians Living Abroad (MHAVE);
  • Jean Roudy Aly retains his portfolio of Justice and also takes control of the Ministry of Defense;
  • Josué Agénor Cadet, head of the Ministry of National Education and Vocational Training (MENFP), will also be responsible for the Youth of Sports and Civic Action.

It is this group that triggered the hostilities of the five opposition senators (Antonio Cheramy, Ricard Pierre, Evaliere Beauplan, Nenel Cassy and Youri Latortue) who categorically refused the accumulation of portfolios, demanding a separate Minister by ministry.
