PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (defend.ht) - Prime minister-designate Garry Conille on Thursday filed his supporting documents to the Chamber of Deputies for review by the commission on ratification.
The Prime Minister presented a prospective set of 26 documents, including passports, birth certificates of his parents and his grandparents, a certificate of residence, among other documents.
Dr. Conille was accompanied by former Minister of Justice, Gary Lissade and Dr. Emile Herard, who gave their assurance that his documents are in accordance with what is prescribed in the Constitution of 1987.
"We have not yet read all the documents submitted by the prime minister designate," said Member of Parliament, Descolines Abel, the Reporting Secretary of the special commission tasked to verify the submissions of Dr. Conille. Abel also informed that the individual has provided more pieces of proof than the commission requires.
The commission will begin work on Friday morning. As was the case when checking parts of Daniel Rouzier, the Committee will be divided into several sub-committees to do the job.
"The sub-committee will visit the public institutions concerned to verify the authenticity of documents submitted by the prime minister designate," said the journalist-turned-parliamentarian, Abel.
The special committee to analyze the parts of Dr. Garry Conille has granted the designate the benefit of urgency to proceed to the ratification process. According Descolines Abel, the report of the Committee should be ready by the end of next week.
Meanwhile, the debates in the media as in the halls of Parliament on the appointment of Daniel Rouzier. Unlike the hostile climate that prevailed in both Houses about the appointment of Bernard Gousse, parliamentarians shown more favor towards Garry Conille.
Even the group of 16 in the Senate did not dare take a clear position.
"There is still no fixed position within the group," they repeat like a refrain. In the lower house, many MPs speak out openly in favor of the choice of Garry Conille.
