Haiti’s recalcitrant senators pressured by colleagues to pass electoral law – Curaçao Chronicle

The president of Haiti’s senate, Dieuseul Simon Desras, and more than a dozen other senators have repeatedly called on a handful of six extremist colleagues to renounce their “evil strategy” consisting in boycotting sessions, preventing at the same time the senate from reaching the quorum required to hold a session.“I am sorry to admit it, but it is true that there are senators within the group of the six senators who are extremists and I call on them to put the interests of the country higher than their own particular interests,” Desras, who once supported the so-called Group of Six, told HCNN over the weekend.“These hardliners in the senate need to understand that sometimes they have to give up a minimum to keep the essential,” Desras said.Only two thirds of the 30-member Haitian senate remained in office following the end of the term of ten senators over two years ago. via – Curaçao Chronicle.
