The creation of the Independent Commission on Electoral Evaluation was possible with the consensus of the two leading contending presidential candidates Jude Célestin and Jovenel Moïse. The commission can receive support and advice of national and international experts and it is empowered to define its own methodology and decide its scope and extent of investigations. It would analyze the available information concerning the ballots and proceedings of the vote tabulation centers. As per Prime Minister Evans Paul, the main goal of this Commission would be to create political stability in the country and ensure that the voting process is transparent and free from all biases.

Commission calls for resignation of Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe

Commission calls for resignation of Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe

President Michel Martelly received officially the result of the consultative commission on December 9, 2014

Haiti commission calling for Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe to resign. In addition, other recommendations were made, including that the Supreme Court president and all the present Provisional Electoral Council members also resign before December 25, 2014. It must be noted that no recommendation was put forward that coincided with the opposition's solution of the President himself stepping down. There was a similar call, however, for a number of political prisoners held at random, and who have not yet been put before a judge, to be released at once.

All this was announced at a press conference at which the President stated that there wasn't a sacrifice too high he was unwilling to make for the country. He presented the commission's recommendations and said he would have to think over it for the next two days. Prime Minister Lamothe was noticeably missing from this conference.

Haiti commission calling for Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe to resign

A curious change in the recent demands for executive resignation was the Haiti commission's call for the stepping down of Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe. Undoubtedly, most of the cry, while it would include the entire administration of the President, was toward the Head of State, Michel Martelly. Possibly even more surprising is that the commission was set up by the President himself.

The panel of 11 members that consisted of religious leaders and former officials was set up on November 28, 2014 with the aim to find a resolution for the current political situation that has seen the overly-long, hotly-contested delay of the municipal and legislative elections in the country. The panel met for eight days, and at the end of it came up with this solution of the Prime Minister stepping down, so that a consensus government could be formed.

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

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."

Membres de la Commission consultative presidentielle

Membres de la Commission consultative presidentielle

Here is a picture of the Consultative commission put in place by President Michel Martelly. They are probably the last hope before the country falls into total KO

Here are the names:
This commission consists of the following members:

Gérard Gourgues, Patrick Aris, Evans Paul, Chavannes Jeune, Paul Loulou Chéry, Odette Roy Fombrun, Gabriel Fortuné, Réginald Boulos, Rony Mondestin, Charles Suffra and Ogé Beauvoir

Haiti President Martelly's discussions with political and social factions have proved fruitless to break a deadlock to ease political tensions and persuade six opposition senators to pass an amendment to an electoral law. Because the legislators refuse to fill a quorum of the required 16 needed to hold a session to pass legislation, no elections can be held. By January 12th of next year only 10 senators will be left, effectively shutting down Parliament. It is possible Martelly could rule by Presidential decree, unless he decides to extend the term of Parliament.

Despite the threat of a Martelly dictatorship, extremists won't negotiate with him. Their strategy is to build a nation-wide protest movement to force him out of office. In Gonaïves pro-government demonstrators ordered the opposition-six senators to pass the amended electoral law so elections can quickly be held to avoid a constitutional crisis.
