Haiti parliament leaders seek common position out of political crisis | The Miami Herald

The president of Haiti’s lower chamber of deputies said he plans to meet Thursday with Senate President Simon Desras in hopes of finding “a common position” on ending a crippling political crisis that has triggered growing anti-government protests.“The solution to the crisis has to come through the institutions of this country,” said Jacques Stevenson Timoléon, rejecting calls for the resignation of Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe and his government by a presidential commission asking Haiti to implement a series of “calming measures” to stave off the worsening crisis.Timoléon’s efforts come as U.S. envoys Thomas Shannon and Thomas Adams arrived in Port-au-Prince on Wednesday for talks with political leaders about the crisis. via | The Miami Herald
