Michel Martelly Meeting FUSION, Kontra Pep, INITE, Ayisyen pou Ayiti

Here is a picture where Michel Martelly Meeting was meeting with leaders of FUSION, Kontra Pèp, INITE and Ayisyen pou Ayiti at Hotel Kinam

On December 17, 2014, the Haitian President Michele Martelly held a meeting with the opposition leaders to find a way out to avoid the impending political crisis to which the country is heading in the absence of a long overdue legislative election. Haiti was supposed to hold this election in October 2011 for a majority of Senate seats, the entire Chamber of Deputies and local offices and such failure has continued to foster political uncertainty and had deterred the right to political participation. One third of the Senate seats have become vacant in last October and the fate of another one third has become uncertain because of some conflicting interpretations of a 2008 electoral law by the political parties. In a consequence, out of 140 elected posts in the municipalities, 129 posts have expired in October 2011. The Martelly administration had filled these posts with political appointees in 2012. President Martelly, under the pressure of the United Nations and other international actors convoked a special session of Parliament on November 22 to prepare a draft electoral law for regulating the overdue elections but that has remained unsuccessful.
