The President should have apologized to the population for what happened, something that, according to Eric Jean-Baptiste, the president did not do.

The next thing the president should have done in his national address was to announce the major decisions that the population is expecting from him.

Among these decisions, Eric Jean Baptiste mention 10 billion gourdes that the government is loosing in uncollected Customs duties (franchise douaniere) from big companies who are not paying their fair share.

What happened in Haiti over the weekend was like another earthquake, Jean Baptiste said and the rise in gas prices is only the trigger. It is deeper than that he said. The problem is social inequality.

This happened because the Haitian people is like a coil spring, the more you compress the more likely it will recoil back in your face.
