Here is a picture of Note de press from CSPJ President Jules Cantage.
On Friday, May 27, 2016, by a presidential decree, Jean Danton Léger, the Government Commissioner of the Court of First Instance (CFI) in Port-au-Prince, has been appointed as the new representative of the floors to the Superior Council of the Judiciary (CSPJ). The news of Danton's nomination as a new advisor was not communicated to the President of CSPJ Jules Cantave officially; the President of CSPJ learned about Danton's appointment from the media. The news came to the Judiciary President Cantave as a surprise and he felt stupefied. The President of the judiciary felt irritated and reported the press that the decision of the Provisional President Jocelerme Privert overriding the judiciary is illegal. The term of a CSPJ member is for 3 years and such member cannot hold any other post, anywhere else during his/her tenure with the CSPJ.
Here is a picture of Me Jules Cantave, the new Provisional President of Haiti selected to replace Michel Martelly.
On February 10, 2016, as per an agreement to designate a Government of transition to solve a possible vacuum of power in Haiti, the outgoing President Martelly with the bicameral committee composed of senators and deputies representing the three branches of the Haitian government, including the Executive, legislative and judiciary, responsible for electing the interim president have installed Me Jules Cantave, the President of the Court of Cassation and the Superior Council of the Judiciary (CSPJ), as the new Provisional President of Haiti. Me Jules Cantave has assumed charges of his office on February 14th for 120 days with a responsibility to organize the presidential election on April 24, 2016. The Provisional government will remain responsible to rule Haiti after Martelly's departure.
As Michel Martelly getting ready to leave office, many are asking one question: who will replace him either temporarily or permanently?. Who will have this heavy task to put things in order. So far, the three most likely candidates are: 1) the current judge of the Court of Cassation Jules Cantave, 2) the president of the Senate Jocelerme Privert 3) the actual Defacto Prime Minister Evans Paul.
On the other side, I also know that based on interest, many people would see it differently. Do you see it the same way i do? Do you see something evolving that i have not seen yet?
Do you have any suggestion?
