Indeed, in a tweet published yesterday Wednesday, the US Embassy in Haiti urges the Haitian authorities to form “a CEP with upright, honest and competent personalities so that free and fair elections” can be organized in the country. In his laconic message, Ambassador Michel Sison threatens to sanction those who venture to stand in the way.
The Democratic Sector immediately reacted after the tweet of the representative of the star power.
In a note release published Wednesday September 16, 2020, the democratic and popular sector rejects out of hand the latest statement of the American Embassy in Port-au-Prince, encouraging “the stakeholders to do their work to form a Provisional Electoral Council “. According to the democratic and popular sector, elections are not possible with Jovenel Moïse in power.
The Democratic Sector has let it be known that it is time for the American embassy to understand that elections are not possible with Jovenel Moïse in Power.
According to the political coalition of the opposition, the conditions necessary for the creation of the CEP have not been met.
“All the sectors used to participating in the establishment of CEP refused to participate in this process under such conditions, civil society as well as all serious political parties and have declared that they will not participate in the elections with Jovenel Moïse in power. The American embassy cannot speak of elections in a country where leaders of gangs reputed to be close to power circulate freely in the streets and massacre the inhabitants of working-class districts such as the Bel-Air, Cité Soleil, Lassaline, Bas Delmas districts. among others “, wrote the democratic and popular sector in its press note before specifying that it does not intend to back down in front of the threats of the American embassy which made the choice, according to the democratic sector,” to support the corrupt , assassins, and drug traffickers of PHTK power. ”
Further on, the democratic and popular sector indicated that it continues to hold its position.
For members of the democratic sector, there can be no to have elections with Jovenel Moïse especially in this climate of generalized insecurity. Therefore, “the democratic and popular sector calls for the establishment of a disruptive transition for the realization of the national conference, the realization of the petrocaribe trial, as well as the trials of the various massacres orchestrated in the country since the arrival of the PHTK regime in power and especially the organization in the country, of free, honest and democratic elections. ”
According to observers, the US has never been so far in its interference in the internal affairs of the country. Going so far as to threaten nationals to impose elections which are only a sovereign exercise of the Haitian state is downright indecent, analyzes a specialist in international relations who wished to remain anonymous.
