June 10, 2016 - Moise Jean-Charles holds Evans Paul personally responsible for attacks and attempted arson on several gas stations in Port-au-Prince. Moise informed the press that he knows very well what Evans Paul is capable of, consideration his past as former militant "Konpè Plim".
On June 14, 2016, the Haitian Tet Kale Party (PHTK) of former President Martelly and its allies formed a "general mobilization" force with the aim of overthrowing Provisional President Jocelerme Privert from power. The alliance calls themselves Entente Democratic (ED), or Democratic Agreement. Some of the participants of this political coalition include: the KID, the PHTK, the National Consortium of political Parties Haitians, "Repon Peyizan" of "Platfom Viktwa", the National Bloc Right Centre, MONHA. They have invited the general population to take part against the authoritarian and autocratic excesses of the Provisional President Privert and asked the politicians, state institutions and all organized bodies to join a concerted effort for a consensual solution to fill the presidential vacancy.
Evans Paul has said that continuation of Privert as the Interim President without any title or quality is against the law of the country and a matter of criminal offence. The three branches of government, such as, Executive, Legislative and Judiciary, should meet immediately to bring back the country onto the rail of the constitution.
Here is the meeting conducted to finalize the terms for the creation of the Commission of Verification. Present at the meeting was President Jocelerme Privert, PM Enex Jean-Charles and others.
As per news reports dated 17 April, 2016, the terms of reference of the Independent Commission of Electoral Evaluation and Verification were submitted to the Interim President Jocelerme Privert for validation purpose.

Here is a picture of Jean-Charles Moise, Haitian politician. Out of the total 54 presidential candidates, Moise Jean Charles, the former senator from North and the former mayor of Milot, does not have any chance to win, but he caught the attention of many for some other reasons. His constant call for social justice won the hearts of many Haitians. In the last presidential run, he ranked third by receiving 14.22% of the popular votes, after Jovenel Moïse (PHTK 32.81% votes) and Jude Celestin (LAPEH, 25.27% votes). Moise, an undermined character in Haitian politics, is the son of a peasant. He comes from a very modest background. In 2015, Moise founded the political party Platform Pitit Desalin. Every time he ran to contest whether as the mayor of Milot or as the Senator, he was told that he is not qualified to achieve his dream, but he made them true. No racism and classism was ever able to dominate this son of Dessalines.
The question outthere is whether or not two very influential Haiian politicians are in fact related. The individuals in question are Jean Charles Moise and Jovenel Moise. They are both candidates for the presidency of Haiti in the general election in 2015 and 2016.
The suspicion became even greater when in May, 2016 the General manager of OPL, Sauveur Pierre Etienne who was also a candidate during the election declared that the two Jean Charles Moise was in fact have family links and that they were cousins. However, it did not take long for Moise Jean Charles to put out a statement to bring some clarification. He stated that he was not related to Jovenel Moise

Some of the main claims associated with these 20 demonstrations were: Complaints of expulsion from the electoral race; Denunciation of handling of the minutes; Denunciation of ballot stuffing; and Release of Pitit Dessalines supporters, arrested and held in custody. Teams of researchers with supports of Brazil-based Igarape Institute have conducted two surveys, one immediately following the election on October 25th and another on November 5th, after the announcement of preliminary results. Eighty two percent of the exit poll voters were agreed on the Election Day that the election was fair, there was no fraud. However, when the same voters were asked after the result on November 5th, Ninety percent of them said they now disagree with the earlier statement.
