PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haïti - Gervais Charles, président du barreau de Port-au-Prince, se trouvait parmi le groupe de manifestants qui se sont rencontrés jeudi pour protester contre la désignation de Daniel Rouzier du Premier ministre.
Gervais Charles is a lawyer and up until recent weeks, the Legal Advisor of Michel Martelly and the Peasant Response Party.
Charles has told the demonstrators that it is not their choice who will be the next Prime Minister of the State, it is the President and the Presidents of the two houses who will choose.
"It is not an elected office, I am not in a campaign and I did not ask anyone to campaign for me," Charles told the Haïti Press Network .
Factions of the Peasant Response Party continue to criticize the possible choice of Mr. Rouzier whose name is often cited as the future Prime Minister of the new President.
President Martelly has designated Daniel-Gerard Rouzier, a businessman and social worker, for his choice of Prime Minister.
Are there consultations that have begun on the matters of setting up this new government?
Good. The first consultations have begun consisting of several groups, composed of political parties, composed of parliamentarians who are elected or who have served, there are a lot of consultations that have begun on the new administration of Michel Martelly.
But I do not know what kind of consultations they have given, truly. But we know the country will have a parliament of many parties where there won't be a party with an absolute majority, and at this time the choice of the Prime Minister remains in the hands of the President and the review of the Presidents of both houses. So, there are negoitations that are obligatory in this matter.
What kind of government do you all envision having?
There are two points that are important. President Martelly said he has an open government that is based on competence. So, I am sure he will look for people who have sufficient competence to enter into the government...
There is information circulating in the streets that Gervais Charles will be proposed for Minister or Prime Minister? Can you confirm or unconfirm these talks?
I have not discussed with the president I have not discussed with him on questions of ministers, I have not talked to him on premature matters. But, the one bit of truth I can say, that there are people who have approached me and told me this is what they would like, this what position they would want to see me in. And for us we are always in a state of exploration, there is not one group that can be pointed out.. but there is a proposition that has been made and I recognize it - we don't have to go far into it - I'm sure you're very interested in the group that I speak of, and there is no reason for me to not tell you the group that approached me: the group that approached me is Peasant Response.
