It is an open fact that Haitian people have paid too dearly for the autocratic ruler Michel Martelly's inept administration. For last one year, he has ruled the country by Presidential decree. He never tried to understand the importance of compromise or the necessity of a national political consensus. Jude Celestin, the most popular presidential candidate, described the last election under his rule as a 'total farce' which does not reflect the desire of the common people. Ultimately, he has announced his scheduled departure on February 7. However, on February 6, before leaving his office, he 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 through an agreement. However, as per G8, this agreement attempts to validate the 2015 election disregarding the general consensus and protests of the common people. It seeks to postpone a crisis that needs an immediate solution.
