Jocelerme Privert and Enex Jean-Charles

Jocelerme Privert and Enex Jean-Charles

Here is a picture of Provisional President Jocelerme Privert with his Prime Minister Enex Jean-Charles.

Now with the Interim President Jocelerme Privert and the Prime Minister Enex Jean-Charles, the country has found four able hands of administration, unlike the earlier Martelly-Lamothe tandem, where both were inexperience to manage the uphill tasks lying before them. The Privert-Jean-Charles has a heavy responsibility to complete the remaining election process in a fair and credible way. A responsibility which is comparable to working on a minefield. Since no election could be arranged before April 24th, the agreement of February 5th, 2016, has been scrapped. The nation is depending on these two experienced men, President Privert and Prime Minister Enex Jean-Charles. The time will tell how they could guide us to a better tomorrow.

Fran├žois Anick Joseph, became  Ministry of the Interior and Territorial Communities

Here is a picture of former Senator François Anick Joseph who became Ministry of the Interior and Territorial Communities.

In a circular note dated April 1, 2016, by the General Directorate of the Ministry of Interior and Territorial Communities (MICT), the executives and the other employees of the department were informed that Mr. François Anick Joseph (born December 23, 1961) will be installed as the new minister of the Ministry of the Interior & Territorial Communities. His installation took place on the same afternoon. The portfolio of this ministry was earlier given to Pierrot Delienne, temporarily, along with his Ministry of Foreign and Religious Affairs on March 28, 2016. François Anick, a member of the ALTENATIV political party is a teacher by profession. We might remember that, following the chaotic August 9 election, then Senator Anick Joseph from Artibonite, on behalf of a joint committee, demanded the arrest of the President of CEP, Pierre Louis Opont. He accused Opont of misusing the $38 million election fund, which he received on behalf of the State, but he led the country to a dead end.

Enex Jean Charles New Prime Minister of Haiti

Enex Jean Charles New Prime Minister of Haiti

Here is a picture of Mr. Enex Jean Charle. According to Radio Station Scoop FM, he has been designated as new Prime Minister.

Now Haiti has a new prime minister named Enex Jean-Charles, amid its political crisis. The new Prime Minister is a civil servant and professor of administrative law who has served as adviser to several presidents. On late Thursday, March 24, 2016, the Senators have voted 20- 0 in favor of Enex Jean-Charles' general policy statement. However, finding a consensus over his nomination was not an easy task, because a group of deputies played hardball with his nominator Privert, refusing to provide a quorum for the hearing until a list of their demands were met. Their main demands were publication of a new election date, and the publication of mayoral results which had been put on hold till the names of the new members of the Provisional Electoral Council are decided. It is unclear how their demands and myriad of problems with their constituencies were met. The President of the Chamber Cholzer Chancy after several requests had mentioned that this is a provisional government with limited mandates. Finally, the new Prime Minister has got approval of the parliament for his 15-member cabinet from both the senate and the lower chamber. The new cabinet is composed of 18 ministries, which would be managed by 15 ministers who have sworn in as part of the country's interim government.
