KREYOL: Men Nouvel... Haiti - KRIZ nan Senat Repiblik la... Jiskaprezan, Senatè yo paka chwazi yon president... Yo eseye ayè Jeudi a, pa gen Quorum... Group minoritè a kanpe an Zoe Blood... Kisa ou panse de sa???

One of the senators interviewed by the media after the session was postponed spoke of the reason why there is a stand still in the senate.

It seems the minority group in the senate want the presidency of the senate under the claim that there will be a monopoly in the powers of the state otherwise. The minority does not want chief of state, the prime minister, and the president of the senate to be all on the same side, politically speaking.

What do you think about that?
