On Sunday, August 5, 2018, Haitian President Jovenel Moïse following a two-day consultation with the presidents of the two branches of parliament, and many sectors of the society in 3 earlier weeks, nominated Jean Henry Céant (61) to be his next prime minister. Jean Henry Céant, a leader of the Renmen Ayiti (Love Haiti) party was two-time presidential candidate in 2010 and 2016 .The announcement came three weeks after the former Prime Minister Jack Guy Lafontant resigned amid violent and deadly protests sparked by a proposed plan to significantly raise fuel prices.
Jean-Henry Céant was born on September 27, 1956 in Goureau, a district in the Croix-des-Missions, at the commune of Tabarre (Haiti). Céant has a genial personality. A one-time notary by profession and former presidential candidate, but is known to many Haitians as a "land thief" (volè tè) for his conduct as a notary. It is a common practice in Haiti that the notaries, a cross between accountant and lawyer, instead of safeguarding the titles to their clients' land, manipulate them for own benefit. Céant is also remembered for his alleged involvement as notaire helping former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide to purchase land in the Port-au-Prince suburb Tabarre for his residence and the Aristide Foundation for Democracy and its university (UNIFA).
Jean Henry Céant has a controversial background. Former Ambassador Kenneth Merten (who now heads the U.S. State Department's Haiti Desk) described Céant in Wikileaks as "Aristide's notary and a personal friend. An early supporter of Aristide, and is thought to have helped Aristide in meeting property ownership requirements so he could run for President. Céant's wealth went up significantly after his ties with Aristide."
Henriot Dorcent, a Haitian political analyst described him as an "opportunist." "Under the dictatorship of Gen. Prosper Avril, he worked closely with lawyer Réné Julien, who was Céant's mentor and Avril's cousin But when the political winds shifted, he joined Aristide and the Lavalas, acting as Aristide's notaire and managed jobs for his wife as Aristide's private secretary and his brother in CONATEL. Then he jumped into the Martelly camp. When Jovenel came to power, he jumped to Jovenel's defence to save him from money-laundering scam through his business Agritrans.

On Wednesday, December 16, 2015, the Executive members of the Commission of Electoral Evaluation have appointed Euvonie Georges Auguste as a member of 'Commission of Electoral Evaluation' created by the President and Evans administration. However, the political platform ' Renmen Ayiti' to which she belongs has denounced this appointment and has asked Mambo Euvonie, to renounce her participation in the commission, as the formation of this Commission is contrary to the request of the G8 group which called for an independent commission of inquiry and a transitional government, to properly investigate the fraud allegations of the October election and to hold new and fair elections. Jean Henry Ceant was a member of the G8 and the presidential candidate in the last election under ' Renmen Ayiti' banner.
Here is a picture of seven of the 8 candidates who are protesting, demanding for an an independent investigation. Samuel madistin, Jude Celestin, Sauveur Pierre etienne, Steven Benoit, Jean Charles Moise, Eric Jean Baptiste, Jean Henry Ceant and Mario Andreso.
Following a meeting with the eight presidential candidates (G8) on Monday, November 16, the nine-member Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) has rejected their requests to form an independent commission to verify the preliminary presidential election results, because as per their statement, the electoral decree does not grant them any authority to do so. Earlier, through a joint petition, eight presidential candidates requested the CEP to form an independent commission, which would inquire about the alleged frauds affecting the integrity of the October 25, 2015 election and place common people's confidence in the electoral process. However, Attorney Samuel Madistin, a presidential candidate and spokesperson for the group believes that the existing law in no way prevents the CEP to from a such commission.

For former Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe the issue of discharge has returned since his registration to participate. For Kesler Dalmacy, his residency requirement is questionable. The allegations on Jovenel Moïse, Jean-Henry Céant and Edwin Zenny are even more serious; while some people are questioning the source or sources of the money for Jovenel Moïse, Jean-Henry Céant was heavily involved in the destruction of houses in the downtown area Port-au-Prince.
