PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (defend.ht) - President Martelly, in a message to the nation on November 23rd, calls to "forget the past." He congratulated Senators who he said had understood the need not to exacerbate the crisis and said he wish bringing together representatives of the three power branches around the same table.
The Haitian president calls to end the crisis between Executive and Parliament. Michel Martelly congratulated the senators not to worsen the situation in their resolutions of November 22 and calls members of the lower house to follow their example, in order to establish stability in the country.
The head of state decides to meet with representatives of the executive, legislature and judiciary, because he believes that harmony between these three entities will promote the economic and social development.
"It's time to forget what happened," said the president in this pre-recorded message broadcast in the media.
"The executive, the judiciary and the legislature are complementary to each other. These three powers must keep the country on track, according to the constitution ", confessed the president.
Finally, he congratulated the behavior of the former Minister of Justice, Josue Pierre-Louis, who, according to the head of state, "left his position to facilitate the resolution of the crisis." Senator KÃ©ly Bastien has in turn responded favorably to Thursday's call for dialogue and reconciliation of President Michel Martelly. He calls it a "gesture of appeasement," likely to create the conditions for initiating a debate on major national issues.
