Here is the National Assembly during its night session to decide on the future of Jocelerme Privert.
The National Assembly is a joint session of Parliament convened for specific purposes laid out in the Constitution. On June 28, 2016, the Haitian lawmakers met in a night session because some of them wanted to involve more members as ministers before they proceed to vote favoring the extension of the term of interim president Jocelerme Privert as the President of the republic. However, when the session finally ended on Wednesday, June 29, 2016 around 4:00AM, the parliamentarians were unable to find a solution because it failed to satisfy the demand of some Senators and Deputies to get their votes.
Here is a picture of President Michel Martelly as he was returning the presidential sash to the National Assembly.
On February 7, 2016, the former President Martelly to symbolize his departure, returned the presidential sash to the National Assembly by handing it over to the then National Assembly President Jocelerme Privert. The presidential sash is an important symbol of the continuity of the presidency, designed to resemble the nation's flag, or the country's national colors and symbols, especially those of Latin American presidents. Its value as a symbol of the office of the head of state can be compared to that of a crown in monarchies. To symbolize a change, Jean-Bertrand Aristide as a new President chose a peasant woman to put the Presidential sash on him. The next morning, President Aristide served breakfast to hundreds of homeless people and street kids at the National Palace.
