Commission member, Mrs. Odette Roy Fombrun, described report as Mission Impossible

Here is member of the Presidential Commission who did not expect for Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe to resign as Prime Minister. In an open letter, Mrs. Odette Roy Fombrun described report that she also signed as "Mission Impossible".

Here is the content of Mrs. Odette Roy Fombrun's open letter:

"Dear friends,

I have a very heavy heart, because a great injustice has been committed this weekend and will have serious consequences for both the executive and the country.

At the analysis, I describe our report of 'Mission Impossible' with few chance of follow up. Prime Minister Lamothe, should resign only when he negotiations would have allowed to find a replacement. But voila, we just add a new institutional vacuum to that provided we wanted to avoid 12 January 2015. The country is the first victim, as many of the work undertaken by the outgoing Government are at risk of being stranded.

By signing the document of the Commission, while I had expressed serious reservations about the path taken by the majority, I was convinced that the President was going to favor the path of the inter-institutional dialogue with other powers, as we had recommended him to reach identify viable compromise with all parties. Above that, personally, I recommended him the way of wisdom and prudence by entrusting to 'a National Arbitration Commission', inspired by Article 289 of the Constitution, therefore representative of all sectors of the nation, the task of deciding on the best way to go about the elections, the CEP, Governance, amendments, the Constitution. A single constraint: no extension or renewal of the mandate of the President, which hand over power on February 7, 2016. The work of the Arbitration Commission should lead us to democratic elections, as expected.

I was convinced that this was the best way to follow to hope to find a solution to of the crisis, avoid the institutional vacuum while ensuring the continuity of the State and prevent further clashes in the country.

Today we can only pray and hope with all our heart not to have to do unfortunate findings, namely, for whom sounded the death knell December 14, 2014."
