Haiti: PHTK, Moise’s political party, opposes upcoming referendum

Liné Balthazar, president of the PHTK, said the political party rejects the constitutional referendum planned for June 27.

Balthazar said logistically, the process will be a fiasco, that the draft Constitution is a reproduction of an authoritarian model and that no consensus has been reached. Several other political parties have also opposed the referendum, which Haiti president Jovenel Moïse has organized.

The PHTK is the political party that brought Moïse to power in 2016. It is unclear what the party’s stance may mean for Moïse’s standing in the party.
