Here is what Martelly's porte-parole, Lucien Jura, said on Haitian Radio over the weekend in Haitian Creole, Translation below:

President Deras di Accord El Rancho a bon pour la poubelle, ann pase a autre chose... Li propose yon nouveau dialoge...

Responsabilite President Deras se organize seance nan parlement an pou yo vote amendment yo... Corespondence saa, se yon demarche ki mande ke yo mete nan poubelle accord El Rancho a...

President Martelly di President Desras ke, antan ke president peyi a, sa pa otorize li pou rantre nan 5 mèt 50 lot pouvoir yo... men si president Senat repiblik la nan iposibilité oswa incapacité pou gere corps Senat a, li pare pou li intèvni epi ede li jere sitiyasion an...

Responsabilite Parlement Haitien an se aplike accord El Rancho a epi vote amandman lwa electoral la...

TRANSLATION:

Lucien jura said that in President Deras' eyes, the El Rancho accord is only good or the trash can, move on to other things... So he [Desras] proposed an new dialogue.

The senate president's reponsability is to get the senators to vote on the ammended electoral law...

President Martelly told President Desras that intervening in the affairs of the other branches of government is not in his job description; however, if Desras is incapable of doing his job, he would be happy to help.

It is the responsibility of the Senators to apply the El Rancho Accord and vote on the amended electoral law...

There was lots of "du bon Francais" in the letter, Jura said, but that's what it boils down to...

What do you think about that?

It is characteristic though unfortunate that we as a people never seem to fail to miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

The so called dialogue El Rancho so many are fixated upon had not mustered the necessary will or power for any national action despite the political theater it provoked.

It has clearly failed in it's ill- conceived effort since it did not meet the basic definitions or requirements to be considered a dialogue.
