Simon Dieuseul Desras or Andris Riche for Senate President
Who will control the Haitian Senate, Simon Dieuseul Desras or Andris Riché?
When Senator Simon Dieuseul Desras won the court case that saw him reappointed to his seat earlier this month, he might not have anticipated that his return to presidency of the senate would also be a fight. The sitting senate president, however, Andris Riche, is not prepared to give the position up easily. Riche has said the senate will wait for a decision from the State, a decision that Desras has made plain could only be waged by an appeal of the Court's order, which is a provisional decision.
